A message from the Beaver Emergency Services Commission [BESC]

Beaver County Region, AB

Please take a moment to assess any home hazards to ensure your family has a safe and joyous Christmas season.

Here are a few quick household checks to make:

  • Ensure Christmas lighting and wiring are clear of any combustibles and your circuits are not overloaded
  • Keep natural trees well hydrated to avoid them drying out
  • Keep lit candles away from other flammable items and do not place them under cabinets or shelves.
  • Do not dispose of Christmas wrappings in a wood burning fireplace
  • Ensure smoke alarms are unobstructed, working and vacuumed clear

In addition, when cooking ‘watch what you heat’ and always have a plan and meeting place assigned if the alarm sounds.

BESC is committed to being prepared just in case. “We would like to thank our firefighters for volunteering to spend their holidays on call to ensure everyone’s safety” says Gene Hrabec, Chairman of BESC.

On behalf of the Beaver Emergency Services Board, we would like to wish you and your families a safe, healthy and happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
