We’re pleased to partner with the Aylmer Fire Department to give away free CO alarms. 

The week of Oct.30, Aylmer’s firefighters will be going door to door sharing important information to keep you and your loved ones safe. They will also be offering a free CO alarm, courtesy of EPCOR and the Fire Department, to homes that need a new one. Missed their visit? Contact firedept@town.aylmer.on.ca​.

​November is Carbon Monoxide Awareness Month


Carbon monoxide (CO) is known as the silent killer because it is an invisible, tasteless and odourless gas. While natural gas is a safe, reliable fuel, CO can be produced if fuel burning appliances aren’t properly installed, maintained or inspected annually. Installing and maintaining a carbon monoxide alarm will also help to keep you and your family safe.​

Follow these tips to reduce the risk:

  • ​Test carbon monoxide (CO) alarms each month and replace batteries every year.
  • Use an alarm that meet the needs of all your family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.
  • Have fuel-burning appliances inspected annually by a TSSA Technician
  • Keep outside vents for furnaces, fireplaces, water heaters and clothes dryers clear of debris, snow and ice.

Learn the sounds of your CO alarm:

  • ​A continuous set of four loud beeps means carbon monoxide is present in your home. Go outside and call 911.
  • A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and must be replaced.
  • If you replace ​​the battery and it continues to chirp, the alarm is at the end of its life and must be replaced.
  • Carbon monoxide alarms also have an “end of life" sound that varies depending on your alarm model. This sound means it is time to get a new alarm. Check the manufacturer’s guidelines or go online to learn more about your model's sound.​​



Wrapping up your list of outdoor projects?

Be sure to contact Ontario One Call ahead of time to locate underground utilities on your property. 

Sinking a shovel into the ground could result in serious injury, widespread service disruptions and costly repairs and under Ontario regulations, you could be held liable for all of it.

It's free. It's easy. It's the law​.
