CARROT RIVER IMPLEMENTS 768-2715 The number of fires fought in 2015 have been minimal. We have provided mutual aid for 2 fires in the RM of Arborfield to assist their fire department. The biggest news this year is the addition of a newer fire truck. We have purchased a 1997 Freightliner Pumper Tanker fire truck. This will greatly enhance the capability of our firefighting. This truck has a large water capacity and compressed air foam for extinguishing fires. We thank the Village of Zenon Park, RM of Connaught and the RM of Arborfield for assistance in funding this new purchase. The remaining portion of funds for this fire truck and equipment has been provided by local donations. We would like to sincerely like to thank all those who have donated to the cause as it has allowed us to equip this truck properly. Equipment is still needed and still being ordered. Training with the new truck is ongoing. We thank our 15 firefighters for volunteering their time and expertise. Carrot River Fire, Rescue and First Responder Volunteers - We thank and salute you!

SDFR maintains a close working relationship with the Smeaton and Nipawin RCMP detachments and thank their members for all the help they have provided at callouts this past year. Our membership has stayed steady at 18, with some turnover due to life and work commitments and a couple notable retirements. Sonia Fidyk stepped down after serving for many years as a first responder. Don Clarke, one of our founding members, has recently retired as he and his wife are moving to be closer to their children. We also have two junior members working their way up the ranks – Colby White (a third generation firefighter) and newcomer Cameron Pocha. Training is ongoing always. Regular practices and drills are supplemented with available workshops. SDFR also sends members to both the spring and fall Saskatchewan Volunteer Fire Fighter Assocation firefighting schools. All this would not be possible without the support of our community in our fundraising efforts. Our main fundraiser for the year – Ladies Night Out – will be held on October 24th and is close to selling out.

However, they should always be used with caution. Nobody wants a special candlelit dinner to turn into a nightmare. Here are some tips for avoiding fire risks around candles. Choose the right candle holder Make sure your candle holders are stable and large enough to collect dripping wax. Avoid those that are made of wood or plastic. Be careful with glass candle holders; the heat of the candle could break them. ...and the right candle Avoid using candles with multiple wicks, as they can produce big, high flames and intense heat. They can also melt quickly and produce large quantities of hot wax. Position your candles in safe places Always place your candles on a stable, unobstructed surface, a minimum of 30 cm away from fabrics, paper, woodwork and wallpaper. Make sure they are out of the reach of your children and pets.

Above all, never, under any circumstances, leave burning candles unattended. Likewise, you should never use candles in your bedroom, as you might fall asleep before you blow them out. 306-862-3134 NIPAWIN BE ALARMED - BE PREPARED! Do you know how to use a fire extinguisher? In case of fire, you should always evacuate your home as quickly as possible. However, in some situations a portable fire extinguisher can be very useful if it’s used properly. Do you know how to use yours? The first thing to remember is that a portable fire extinguisher should only be used on a small fire or incipient fire — one in the initial stages — and only if the room isn’t filled with smoke. After all, it takes just three minutes to be asphyxiated. If you’re sure you aren’t in any danger, follow these steps to use your extinguisher: 1. Remove the extinguisher from its mounting and heft it in your hands to make sure it’s full. Check that the needle is in the green zone of the pressure gauge. 2. Position yourself between the fire and an exit (or with your back to the wind if the fire is outside), and approach to within two or three metres of the fire. 3. Remove the safety pin by turning it Check your smoke detector batteries monthly!

Take hold of the nozzle and aim it at the base of the flames, pressing the lever down as far as it will go. Sweep the nozzle from side to side, always at the base of the flames, being sure to cover the entire width of the fire. 5. Stop only when the flames are extinguished or the fire extinguisher is empty. If the fire doesn’t go out or if the room is filling with smoke, evacuate the premises immediately. Call 911 and wait for the firefighters to arrive. If the fire seems to have gone out, call the fire department anyway; the fire could have spread into the walls. After the fire, be sure to replace your fire extinguisher or have it filled, even if it isn’t empty. Place it near an exit where it is vi sible and easy to get to. Thank You For Your Hard Work And Dedication To Our Communities! 768-3783 – Carrot River
