Two Caledon Teenagers are Local Heroes

July 29, 2014

Emma Brown and Mitchell Devins-Cann are Caledon’s local heroes; their bravery and quick thinking helped save lives and minimize property damage.

On July 1, 2014, Emma and Mitchell were in the vicinity of a De Rose Avenue residence when they discovered fire and smoke, and sprang into action. Emma immediately called 911, while Mitchell ran to the front door to alert the family inside. Emma stayed on the phone to continually update the 911 operator with information.

Emma and Mitchell remained calm throughout the incident, even with the presence of fire developing at the side of the house. They demonstrated fire safety knowledge by taking appropriate actions to help mitigate a serious fire situation.

Although the damage to the home was minimal, everyone survived to tell about it, thanks to the heroic efforts of Mitchell and Emma.

Both teenagers will be nominated to receive an Ontario Fire Marshal’s Fire Safety Action Award, recognizing outstanding contributions to fire protection and prevention in Ontario.

The Caledon Fire Service is urging all residents to ensure they have working smoke alarms on every level of their home, including the basement. Also, if the smoke alarms in your home are 10 years old or older, replace them immediately. The Fire Chief urges all residents to develop and practice a home fire escape plan.
