The Oakville Fire department would like to remind you that with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, we may be a bit distracted. Please put safety first. Never leave cooking or candles unattended. Decorative lights should be inspected every year before using them. If wiring is frayed or worn they should be replaced. Don’t forget to turn off the Christmas tree lights before going to bed or whenever you leave your home and to keep it watered. Also, please ensure you have working smoke alarms on every level of your home. Visit the Fire Safety Tips page for more details.
