TSSA CO Safety Tour:

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management is excited to be supporting the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) with their CO Safety Tours to raise awareness on Carbon Monoxide Safety. The tours will include a flat/tent built to create an environment resembling a home equipped with CO risk sources. Participants will be able to move through the home and engage in an augmented reality experience with the various sources of CO found in the home. The CO Safety Tour will also include the ability for visitors to take what they have learned and make a long-term commitment/pledge to safety online. As part of this commitment/pledge tour visitors will be able to take pictures of themselves and post to social media platforms. Below are the upcoming venues that will include the CO Safety Tours:
• Sudbury Home Show,
April 20-22, 2018
