This Month`s Safety Tips
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. When First Responders are trying to find the location being able to see the Civic Address Sign is critical.
Any time of the year we could be faced with a weather emergency, you will need some basic supplies. Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours. You should prepare a kit that includes food, water, cash, medications and a wind up flashlight just to name a few items. Get a more complete list at www.getprepared.gc.ca .
While electric space heaters are easy to use, they also pose a fire hazard if not used properly. Make sure your unit is certified by CSA or ULC. Avoid using extension cords with space heaters. Read the manufactures operating guidelines and ensure you follow the recommended setbacks from flammables. Check us out on Instagram!
