This is to confirm the Town of Petawawa Fire Department is not currently conducting smoke alarm inspections in residences owned by senior citizens or any citizens in the Petawawa area. It has been reported that someone representing the local Fire Department has called some local senior citizens to inform them of an upcoming smoke alarm inspection in their residences.

The Town of Petawawa Fire Department Staff conduct voluntary residential smoke alarm checks in the fall always working in pairs (two firefighters), wearing departmental uniform and carrying proper identification from the Town of Petawawa.

Should a suspicious person attend your residence for this pretext and does not carry valid identification; do not allow them in and notify your local Police agency.
