Hi Junior Sparks!

How is your winter going? During this time of year when you are busy keeping warm while snowboarding, sledding, tubbing or just being around the house we must not forget safety.

  • When participating in any extreme sports remember to wear a helmet, knee and elbow pads.
  • Make sure you sled only on snow-covered hills that are free of rocks and stumps and far from streets or traffic.
  • Buy a sled with a steering mechanism to help avoid collisions.
  • Make sure you always sit upright on the sled or toboggan. Lying on your stomach increases the risk of injuries.
  • Ski or snowboarding remember the safety codes.
  • Look out for Winter Dangers to Your Pets.
  • Frostbite and Hypothermia are two of the biggest cold related killers.
  • Subtle dangers of winter sports.
  • And always when riding in vehicles don't forget to buckle up.

If you are in due to a storm or illness you can go to this site and still build a snowman.

If you have a question on fire safety or how to become a fire fighter email me. Have a safe and happy winter.
