Fire Chief issues safety message

Clarington June 29, 2015/- As we approach Canada Day, Clarington Emergency and Fire Services would like to remind all residents about firework safety. Please ensure that the discharge of fireworks is done by responsible adults. The fire department would like to advise all residents to have an extinguisher, or a method of extinguishing any potential flames, on hand. Fireworks in Clarington are allowed between dusk and 11 p.m. on Canada Day. Sky lanterns, also known as Chinese lanterns, have been banned in the Municipality after several caught fire and landed on roofs.

"Safety is always our priority. The Clarington Emergency and Fire Services would like to wish all residents a happy Canada Day. Please celebrate safely," said Fire Chief Gord Weir.

We would also like to remind residents about safety on our waterways. A large amount of rainfall over the past few weeks has caused higher than normal water levels in lakes and faster river flows. Please be safe as you enjoy boating and swimming this summer.
