Ajax Fire Services is raising awareness about fire safety with the Get Real Ajax campaign. The campaign runs from September 13 to October 15 and focuses on educating residents about fire safety and common fire-related issues in their communities.

During the campaign, select Ajax households will receive an automated telephone message from Ajax Fire Chief Dave Lang, with helpful and practical tips on what residents can do to protect their family from fire.

Ajax households will also receive a Get Real Ajax information card in the mail and a door-to-door visit from Ajax firefighters to discuss the reality of fires in the community. Please note, Fire Services will be following health and safety guidelines including wearing masks and maintaining physical distancing.

Residents will also be able to follow Get Real Ajax fire safety tweets and videos on the Town’s social media pages and Ajax Fire’s Twitter (@ajax_fire) account. Residents can interact with us by using the hashtag #GetRealAjax.
