This Month’s Safety Tips
Congratulations to Fire Fighters Haley Campbell, Abbey MacCormack and Neil Webber for successfully completing the testing for their Class 3 A Drivers Licence. The Class 3 A licence is required to drive any of the fire trucks.
If you use a real tree place it in a stand that will hold 2 to 3 litres of water and top it up daily. Make sure it is always immersed in water: If water drops below the trunk, the stem may reseal itself, requiring a fresh cut. Use a tree stand that has widespread legs for better balance.
Candles are one of the leading causes for dwelling fires and Fire Departments recommend they are only used with extreme caution. Place candles away from absolutely anything that could catch fire. Never leave burning candles unattended. Burn them only when a responsible adult is overseeing the flame.
St.Peters Fire Department ask you to make sure your Civic Address number is displayed properly so that the number is clearly visible from the road through out the year.
Frost and black ice will soon be a common thing in the mornings and evenings. Make sure you clear your windows before you get on the road and give yourself extra stopping distance. Walkways and door steps will also get slippery as the temperature drops.
