The Manitoba Association of Fire Chiefs is assisting with the implementation of the program throughout the province. The program will be announced at the Manitoba Association of Fire Chiefs conference in June.

The overall goal of Manitoba’s S.A.F.E. Family program is to save lives by protecting every home with working smoke alarms and a practiced fire escape plan. Ongoing evaluation is an essential component that will help to ensure the program is meeting its intended outcomes and continues to be effective, specific, relevant and measurable. In order to evaluate the program, appropriate data will be gathered and analyzed by the Office of the Fire Commissioner and Red River Mutual. Ongoing monitoring and evaluation will highlight areas of the program that need revision and indicate where additional efforts need to be focused. It will also help to ascertain the costs associated with the program and assist the funding partners to plan for the future.

The evaluation data will help to streamline the program, modify outcomes, change activities or target a different client group. Working together, we will make Manitoba a safer place to live. (open and download in pdf)
