Dec. 14: Fire Safety Tips


The government reminded residents to make fire safety a priority this time of year. Over the holidays and winter months, always remember to:

  • Take care when cooking or smoking
  • Never discard fireplace or wood stove ashes in your green bin. Instead, place them outside in a metal container and away from your house. Let the ashes sit for at least 72 hours before disposing of them.
  • Never leave candles unattended.
  • Water your natural tree, turn off the lights when not in use and keep it away from heaters or any flammable objects.
