It’s Smoke Alarm Month and Markham Fire and Emergency Services is challenging residents to check and make sure they have a working smoke alarm on each floor of their residence and outside all sleeping areas. Check the expiry date and if you replace your smoke alarm, drop off the old one by March 31 at any Markham fire station. Fill out a ballot and enter the draw for one of ten swag bags.
