To the editor:
Cottage season is here. Remember, it is law in Ontario to have working alarms on each storey and outside all sleeping areas in your cottage, as it is in your home.
Please also check your local laws regarding carbon monoxide alarms.
Fire chiefs across cottage country want you to have ‘Peace of Mind At Your Piece of Heaven.’
Watch for our TV reminders featuring FishTV host Leo Stakos, and heed these five tips:
- Change all smoke alarm batteries at least once per year.
- Replace all smoke alarms more than 10 years old.
- If your cottage has a fireplace, or gas or propane appliances, install at least one CO.
- Clean heating appliances and barbeques before use. Ensure all combustibles, as well as children and pets, are kept well away while grilling.
- Check with local authorities for restrictions on campfires or burning brush.
