Outdoor fires

Outdoor fires are allowed providing certain rule are respected. First, one has to get a FREE fire permit, print and fill the form before going to the Town Hall for validation or fill one out at the front desk. One must have a garden hose which can reach the fire pit, and monitor the fire and control the flames at all times.
Even a small fire can quickly become out of control and be devastating.

Chimney sweeping

Before lighting you first fire this fall, have your chimney swept. If you use the wood stove or fireplace often, it should be cleaned at least twice a year and the chimney verified at the same time. Passing the brush is not sufficient; the deposits left by the brush also need to be cleaned out. Make sure you are using dry wood, since it leaves less creosote deposits on the chimney walls. Hire professionals, they have the required experience.

Smoke detectors

Make sure that your residence is equipped with a smoke detector correctly installed and in working order. « It can save lives ». Think about getting carbon monoxide detectors for your home, to learn more about it, click here.

Evacuation plan

In case of fire, a sense of panic often will cloud one’s judgment, and that is when unfortunate incidents can happen. There are means to avoid this. A smoke detector is part of the solution, but is not sufficient. Planning how to get out of the building is key. In order to do so, one can plan with the other family members an evacuation plan.

This plan can save lives. How many times have we heard in the medias that someone has gone back in the building to get someone inside? This could be avoided by good planning using an evacuation plan. This plan also needs to be practiced from time to time if you have one.

Civic numbers

A badly located civic number, which is not visible from the street or simply missing, greatly affects the emergency services response time. Weather at night or during the day, your civic number must be visible at all times. Know that there is a municipal by-law to that effect and that a fine can be given to those who do not respect it.

Intermunicipal agreements

Morin-Heights has a reciprocity agreement the municipalities of Saint-Sauveur, Sainte-Adèle, Saint- Adolphe d’Howard & Wentworth-Nord to increase the firefighting force and to multiply the advantage in terms of equipment available when required (tanker).
