Ajax Fire personnel are raising awareness about fire safety with the bi-annual Get Real Ajax Campaign. The campaign runs from September 14 to October 16 and focuses on educating residents about fire safety and fire-related problems in their communities.

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

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.
Residents will also be able to watch a Get Real Ajax fire safety video and posts on the Town’s Facebook and Twitter accounts and interact with us by using the hashtag #GetRealAjax.

The Ajax Fire Chief hopes that through education, awareness and teamwork, fire-related fatalities, injuries and property damage can be reduced across the Town.
