The following are recommendations from the Fire Department for residents:
  • keep driveways clear of snow, tree branches, and any other obstructions (clear to a minimum width of 14 feet)
  • ensure your civic address sign is visible; emergency vehicles depend on those numbers for reference when locating a residence  during a response
  • ensure that your fuel is dry and your chimney is cleaned regularly, especially if wood is your primary heating fuel
  • ensure all entry/exits in your home are cleared from snow
  • make sure all windows are not frozen
  • when burning, always have a water supply available should a fire get out of control
  • SLOW DOWN and MOVE OVER for all Emergency Vehicles; please lower your speed and drive with caution and give safe clearance when passing all emergency response vehicles
  • replace smoke alarms every 10 years
  • ensure you familiarize yourself with the RM's Burning By-Law and learn what you can and cannot burn and in what areas; more information on fire safety and burning can be found on the Wildfire, Burning and Fire Safety Information page
