(New Communities) Emergencies Response Time.

Fire can spread to multiple homes in under 10 minutes

Fire personnel and equipment must arrive quickly as fires can spread rapidly. Fires can flashover (an instance of a fire spreading very rapidly across a gap because of intense heat) in less than ten minutes. According to scientifically proven data from the NFPA, the probability of civilian death increases by 1,090% when a fire moves beyond the room of origin.

On November 28, 2017, at 11:26 am, Calgary Firefighters responded to a multi-home fire in Sage Hill. The fire crews arrived at 11:29, which was a 3 minute 50 second response time. The second truck arrived at 11:34, 7 minutes and 54 seconds after the 911 call was placed. If this community had a 10-minute response time, how many other homes would have been a total loss?

Calgarians need to speak up for their families, friends and neighbor’s safety. Please contact your City Councilor and the Mayor to express your concerns before a final decision is made on March 19th.
