‘Tis the season for 12 days of holiday fire safety

Wednesday, December 9, 2015 – for immediate release

‘Tis the season for 12 days of holiday fire safety

Share Oakville Fire’s safety tips on social media for a chance to win!

Oakville Fire is joining fire departments across Ontario in support of the Ontario Fire Marshal’s “12 Days of Holiday Fire Safety” campaign to raise awareness of holiday fire hazards and steps residents can take to stay safe.

“December is traditionally one of the most dangerous months of the year for fatal fires,” said Fire Chief Lee Grant. “That’s why it’s so important to take every precaution so that you and your family can enjoy a safe and happy holiday season.”

The Oakville Fire department will share the daily safety tips listed below on its Twitter account @oakvillefire and on the town’s Facebook page.

“These tips are easy to remember, easy to share and could potentially save a life,” said Glenn Barwell, public education officer, Oakville Fire.

Day 1: Water fresh trees daily.
Day 2: Check all lights before decorating.
Day 3: Make sure you have working smoke alarms.
Day 4: Protect your family – carbon monoxide alarms are now required by law.
Day 5: Make sure everyone knows how to get out safely.
Day 6: Use extension cords wisely.
Day 7: Give space heaters space.
Day 8: Go flameless (use battery-operated candles).
Day 9: Keep matches and lighters away from children.
Day 10: Watch what you heat.
Day 11: Ask smokers to smoke outside.
Day 12: There’s more to responsible drinking than taking a cab home.

Residents who share or retweet the tips will have a chance to win one of 12 home fire safety kits. One winner will be chosen randomly each business day (Monday to Friday) from December 9 to 24.

Tour of Lights party brings holiday spirit to Oakville seniors

Thursday, December 11, 2014 – for immediate release

Tour of Lights party brings holiday spirit to Oakville seniors

The Town of Oakville and many generous volunteers hosted the 45th annual Tour of Lights party last night to give 160 Oakville seniors an opportunity to take in the holiday light displays throughout town.

“This annual event for seniors is a great example of our community coming together to make the season brighter for many frail and elderly residents,” said Nina de Vaal, director of recreation and culture for the Town of Oakville. “Thank you to the many volunteers who donated their time to share the holiday spirit with others.”

This year’s event began with a refreshment stop and entertainment at Town Hall followed by a tour of Oakville’s brightest holiday light displays led by off-duty Oakville Transit drivers and limousine drivers from Ward’s Funeral Home.

The popular annual event is offered free for seniors, many of whom would be unable to see the holiday lights on their own.

Visit the seniors services page for more information about the town’s services and programs for seniors.
