Prevention week is upon us (Oct 8-14 2017) and we would like all residents to be aware of fire safety and emergency preparedness. Practicing fire drills at home, making sure your smoke detectors are functioning properly and are not expired and knowing how to escape your home and meeting at one common spot away from the home are important for your life safety.
General notes for your family:
- 1 smoke detector per floor (not older than 7-10 yrs.)
- Change batteries when you change the time on November 5th, 2017
- Test your detectors once a month and vacuum them often to avoid dust build up
- Make an Evacuation plan with the family, including a meeting point away from the house in an emergency to avoid members going back in the home.
- For additional information, go to the Québec Public Security site at: http://www.securitepublique.gouv.qc.ca
Reminder: La Grande Evacuation Wednesday Oct 11 2017 18:00-20:00. More details HERE
We are also having a little contest during prevention week. You can win the opportunity to be a firefighter for a day. More details HERE.
