Home Fire Safety Tips for the Christmas Season

.. Make sure your smoke detectors are working and the batteries are changed every 6 months

.. It is recommended to have a CSA approved carbon monoxide detector

.. Get a freshly cut tree if using a real one and keep watered

.. Choose decorations that are flame-retardant, non-

combustible and non-conductive

.. Use CSA certified light sets

.. Avoid burning wrapping paper in the fireplace or wood stoves. They burn too rapidly and generate too much heat

.. Avoid overloading wall outlets or extension cords

Fire Dept. Calendars – The 2023 Fire Dept. calendars have been ordered and once arrive, can be picked up at the Village Office. Cost will remain at $10. Thank you for supporting your local Volunteer Fire Department
