As power begins to be restored across town, Georgina is winding down the temporary warming shelter for the night. Staff will continue to clear Town roads and sidewalks of ice and debris throughout the weekend. Residents are reminded to stay clear of downed power lines and to watch for falling ice and tree limbs. For homes and businesses still without power, please make sure that you turn off any major appliances such as electric ranges and stove tops as these could pose a potential fire hazard when the power comes back on.
The Georgina Fire Department would like to remind residents to take care when operating back-up generators and barbecues especially for people who are continuing to experience power outages due to the ice storm.
NEVER use a barbecue inside your home or garage, or you could put you and your family at serious risk of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning!
NEVER operate a generator inside your home, basement or garage or you could put you and your family at serious risk of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning!

Georgina Town staff are busy dealing with the aftermath of the ice storm. Please stay away from downed wires and be careful and watch for tree branches that may fall due the weight of the ice.
