IT'S FIRE PREVENTION WEEK!

October 7th-13th is Fire Prevention Week.  Georgina Fire and Rescue Services is urging everyone to look, listen and learn. The 2018 theme is Be aware – Fire can happen anywhere.

  • LOOK for potential fire hazards around your home. Take action to prevent fire from starting. Always stay in the kitchen while cooking. If you must leave, turn off the stove. Encourage smokers to smoke outside. Always extinguish cigarettes in large, deep ashtrays that cannot be knocked over.
  • LISTEN for the smoke alarms in an emergency. Make sure everyone knows the sound of the smoke alarms and can hear them. Early detection of fire provided by smoke alarms gives you the extra seconds you need to get out safely.
  • LEARN two ways out of every room. Practice a home fire escape plan with everyone before a fire starts so you and your family can get out quickly.         

Open-Air/ Recreational Burning

With fall clean-up, make sure to have you have your Open Air Burn Permit!  Whether you are having a recreational campfire or open-air burn on your property, make sure to read our Open Air Burning By-law.

Annual burn permits are available.  For a list of locations, and general guidelines, have a look at our Quick Reference Guide.
