Infant and child car seat safety

BCAA’s Child Passenger Safety Program provides comprehensive child car seat safety information, including how to do the following:

  • choose the right car seat for your child from birth to over nine years old
  • install a child car seat and secure your child

Fire extinguisher training

You can arrange for fire extinguisher training for your group, organization or employees.

Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Services will teach your employees how to choose the correct fire extinguisher to safely respond to a small fire in your workplace.

Free smoke alarm testing or installation for seniors

If you are a senior or a person living with a disability, you can request a free smoke alarm for your household or help with testing any existing smoke alarms in your home.

The City of Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service is offering this program in cooperation with the Fire Chiefs’ Association of BC and the Province of British Columbia.

Research has shown that individuals who are elderly or living with a disability and other at-risk populations face the highest risk of dying in a residential fire. This program is intended to allow individuals at higher risk to continue to live safely and independently in their homes.

It is recommended that one smoke alarm be installed on every level of your home.
