FIRE & RESCUE

CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING

With the cold winter upon us, South Stormont Fire & Rescue is urging the public to be aware of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and how to be safe from this “silent killer.”

CO is an invisible and odourless gas emitted from the combustion process of fuels such as kerosene, gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil and methane. Installing a CO alarm(s) in your home will alert occupants to the presence of this deadly gas.

CO facts and tips:

  • Exposure to CO can cause flu-like symptoms such as headaches, nausea and drowsiness, as well as confusion, loss of consciousness and death.
  • Install and maintain a CO alarm(s) inside your home to provide early warning of CO danger.
  • CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area.
  • During power outages, locate generators safely away from any of the openings in your home such as air intakes, vents, windows or doors.
  • Never run your car or other fueled engines indoors, even if the garage door is open.
  • Never barbecue inside your garage.
  • During and after a snowstorm, make sure vents for the dryer, furnace, stove and fireplace are clear of snow & ice build-up.
  • If your CO alarm sounds, get everyone out of the home immediately. Call 911 from outside the home. Do not re-enter your home until South Stormont Fire & Rescue arrives to assist you.
  • As you exit your home keep all windows and doors closed. This will help firefighters determine the location of the CO leak.
  • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installing, maintaining, testing and replacement of your CO alarm.

PUBLIC WORKS 

Parking Requirements

Please park your vehicle in your driveway, well off the road, until street and sidewalk cleaning operations are complete.  This allows our crews to do their job and make the streets and sidewalks safe for everyone. (Vehicles interfering with snow removal or blocking sidewalks may be ticketed at a cost of $40.00)

WINTER MAINTENANCE INFORMATION

Winter weather is still here. Your assistance during the winter season will help the Township of South Stormont Public Works Department provide efficient and effective winter maintenance. Please keep the following points in mind throughout the winter season:

  • Trucks with flashing blue lights are working to clear the snow. Please give them room to work and pass very carefully.
  • It may be less frustrating to wait until the plow trucks have completed their street before shoveling the end of your driveway.
  • Snow from the end of the driveway should be shoveled to the right, facing the street.
  • If you hire a contractor to plow your driveway, please remind them that pushing snow back into or across the street is prohibited. Doing so not only creates hazards for drivers, but also makes it difficult to keep the streets clean.
  • The Township’s mailbox policy states that the Public Works Department will only replace a mailbox if the post or box has a direct hit from the Township’s snowplow.
  • If your garbage and / or recycling pickup day coincide with plowing activities, make sure your trash can and recycling bins are behind the curb or in the driveway so that it avoids the plow.

Did you know that the average completion time for each plow route is six (6) hours? Some factors that can affect this approximate time include:

  • snowfall accumulation,
  • type of precipitation (i.e. freezing rain, wet snow or “just plain” snow), and/or
  • the time of day the precipitation occurs.

All concerns or requests relative to snow removal should be directed to the Town Hall at 613-534-8889, please allow our equipment operators to do their job.
