Firefighters recover people from burning building

On January 20, Toronto firefighters attempted to stop a fire that broke out at a strip plaza on Eglinton Avenue East near Danforth Road. According to the Toronto Star, hours prior to that blaze, another one took place in a walkup building, which firefighters were able to recover an elderly woman from.

Almost everyone has documents they want to save. If they aren’t save in a lock box, it might be a good idea to purchase a Toronto storage unit to ensure the items will always be safe.

According to Toronto’s website, on average, firefighters respond to approximately 140,000 emergency incidents resulting in approximately 300,000 vehicle runs annually and about 50 percent of the phone calls they receive are medical related. According to the latest data released by the Children’s Aid Societies in Ontario, community members are extremely concerned about the chances of a fire taking place.

“Despite the fact that the majority of home fires are preventable, there were an average of 1,297 home fires per year between 2004 and 2008 in Ontario (Office of the Fire Marshal, 2011),” a report conducted by the organization revealed. “Tragically, ‘preventable’ home fires are the cause of most children’s fire related injuries and death.”

Jiffy offers businesses plenty of options for Toronto storage, whether one needs to store filing cabinets or office supplies. What’s more, the company is currently holding a contest for a new iPad 3, which is a device that just about every business person could use to help improve productivity.
