Winter fire safety

With the winter months upon us, the shovels and snow-blowers are ready. Be a hydrant hero and keep fire hydrants three feet clear of ice and snow in every direction. In a fire emergency every second counts. You can help us by keeping the fire hydrant closest to your house clear of snow so we can connect to it if needed.  

To protect yourself and your family, take a walk around the outside of your home and make sure the intake and exhaust vents for furnaces and heating appliances are free of ice, snow, debris. This will prevent the buildup of deadly carbon monoxide in your home. Installed carbon monoxide and smoke alarms on every level of your home and test the device monthly.

Portable space heaters have become a popular way to heat a room or space. Ensure your heater is on a flat surface and is one metre (three feet) away from anything that can burn. Never use outdoor heating appliances indoors and consider a heater with an automatic shut off that prevents the device from overheating if it tips over.
