FIRE DEPARTMENT

Basting in BBQ Basics

  • Keep children and pets far away from a hot grill, and never leave them unsupervised in the area of an ignited barbecue.

  • Never use wood, charcoal briquettes, barbecue starter fluid or gasoline in conjunction with your propane or natural gas barbecue.

  • Barbecue in an open outdoor space due to ventilation and safety reasons.

  • Keep the barbecue away from wooden fences, wooden walls, combustible overhead roofs and from trees with low branches.

  • Don’t allow an accumulation of grease to occur by keeping your grill and burners clean.

  • Never fight a grease fire with water – this will only cause the flames to flare up. Keep loose clothing away from a hot barbecue – roll up your sleeves or cook in a short sleeved shirt. If your clothing catches on fire, quickly Stop, Drop and Roll.

  • Use long handled tongs and brushes while grilling.

  • Wear oven mitts and a heavy apron to protect yourself from fire while grilling.

  • If you do burn yourself, run the affected area under cool water for five minutes. If your burn is serious (charring, blistering) seek medical attention right away.

Welcome Back To School! Keep it fun, safe and successful.

Whether on a city street, highway or county road, and regardless of the speed limit and the number of lanes, motorists travelling in both directions must stop when approaching a stopped school bus with its upper red lights flashing. A flashing stop arm will swing out while passengers are boarding or leaving the bus. (The only exception: on highways separated by a median, traffic coming from the opposite direction is not required to stop). Once all passengers have boarded, the STOP arm will fold away. Do not start moving until the red lights have stopped flashing and the bus begins to move. -Ministry of Transportation Ontario-

Important: Vehicle owners can be charged if their vehicle illegally passes a stopped school bus. Fines range from $400 to $2,000.
