Mayor's Proclamation 2014
Fire Prevention Week
- WHEREAS, the Village of Kenaston is committed to ensuring the safety and security of all those living and visiting our community;
- AND WHEREAS, fire losses in Canada, despite marked improvement, remain unacceptably high in comparison with those of other industrialized nations thereby necessitating improved fire prevention measures;
- AND WHEREAS, working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home fires in half;
- AND WHERAS, when smoke alarms should have operated but did not do so it was usually because batteries were missing, disconnected or dead;
- AND WHEREAS Kenaston residents should install smoke alarms in every sleeping room, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home;
- AND WHEREAS Kenaston residents should install smoke alarms and alert devices that meet the needs of people who are deaf or hard of hearing;
- AND WHEREAS, Kenaston residents who have planned and practiced a home fire escape plan are more prepared and will therefore be more likely to survive a fire;
- AND WHEREAS, the 2014 Fire Prevention Theme, "WORKING SMOKE ALARMS SAVE LIVES: TEST YOURS EVERY MONTH! ®" effectively serves to remind us that we need working smoke alarms to give us the time to get out safely.
NOW THEREFORE, I, M.L. Whittles, Mayor of the Village of Kenaston, Saskatchewan, do hereby designate the week of October 5-11, 2014 as Fire Prevention Week, and I call upon the citizens of the Village of Kenaston to participate in fire prevention activities at home, work and school.
I also call upon all residents to test their smoke alarms once a month and to support the many public safety activities and efforts of the Kenaston Rural Fire District and emergency services during Fire Prevention Week 2014.
IN WITNESS THEREOF, I hereunto set my hand this 26th day of September, 2014
