Emergency Preparedness Week May 1 – 7
Is your family prepared to be on your own for 72 hours in case of an extended emergency? Emergency services may not be readily available, as increasing demands are placed on responders. It may take emergency workers some time to get to you as they help those in most critical need. Basic survival items include: two litres of water per person per day, non-perishable foods, can opener, flashlight and batteries, candles matches or a lighter, battery powered or wind-up radio, first aid kit, prescription medications, infant formula if needed, extra keys, cash in small bills, and a list of contact information. Prepare for the worst, and hope for the best! For more information.
With the dry weather, fireworks pose a fire hazard to the community. The City of Kimberley’s Fireworks Bylaw (No. 1558) prohibits the use of fireworks within the municipality. No person shall sell, discharge, explode, set-off, detonate, dispose of, or be in possession of fireworks within city limits. The penalty for committing a firework offence is up to $250. Any fireworks display requires a permit and approval from the Fire Chief. A licenced Pyro Technician must hold a valid Fireworks Supervisor’s Certificate issued by Natural Resources Canada, Explosives Regulatory Division.
