Mayor’s Office - "Committed to Service Excellence"


I, Jeff Lehman, Mayor of the City of Barrie hereby proclaim
October 3-9, 2021 asFire Prevention Week
WHEREAS; Barrie is committed to ensuring the safety and security of all those living in and visiting Barrie; and
WHEREAS; Fire is a serious public safety concern both locally and nationally, and homes are the locations where people are at greatest risk from fire; and
WHEREAS; Smoke alarms detect smoke well before you can, alerting you to danger in the event of fire in which you may have just seconds to escape safely.  Working smoke alarms save lives by providing early warning of fire so you and your family can safely escape; and
WHEREAS; Barrie residents should be sure everyone in the home understands the sounds of the alarms and knows how to respond.  Residents who have planned and practiced a home fire escape plan are more prepared and will therefore be more likely to survive a fire; and
WHEREAS; Barrie residents will make sure their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms meet the needs of all their family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities; and
WHEREAS; Barrie Fire and Emergency Service is dedicated to reducing the occurrence of home fires and home fire injuries through prevention and public fire safety education; and
WHEREAS; Barrie’s residents are responsive to public education measures and are able to take personal steps to increase their safety from fire, especially in their homes; and
WHEREAS; The 2021 Fire Prevention Week theme, “Learn the Sounds of Fire SafetyTM,” effectively serves to remind us it is important to learn the different sounds of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
THEREFORE, I, Jeff Lehman, Mayor of the City of Barrie, do hereby proclaim October 3 to 9, 2021, as “Fire Prevention Week”, and I urge all the people of Barrie to “Learn the Sounds of Fire SafetyTM,” and to support the many public safety activities and efforts of Barrie Fire and Emergency Service.

- Jeff Lehman, Mayor of the City of BARRIE
