Fire Safety

Don’t Wait! Plan Your Escape!

It is important for you and your family to plan how you would safely get out of your house in the event of a fire or another emergency. Make your plan, practice it, and be prepared!

We all have a personal responsibility for preventing fires. Nova Scotia's Fire Marshal and his staff are dedicated to reducing and eliminating the human suffering and property loss caused by fire. Our goal is to continuously improve fire protection through education, enforcement, and engineering.
