Homeowners must ensure that smoke alarms are installed between sleeping and living areas. They are also required to maintain the smoke alarm in working order.

On behalf of the cottagers on Gagan Lane I want to thank the Council for restoring the annual  tax covered road grading. As promised in 2015 and reconfirmed in 2016 the council responded to the cottager's request for help In maintaining their roads as part of providing fire, ambulance and police protection. The ad hoc committee  provided a very clear policy and procedures statement that we will be pleased to follow.

Resident of Gagan Lane

 

Good Morning,

I'm sure you get many complaints in the township and people are quick to comment but we felt it was also necessary to share this information.

Thomson Road was recently worked on by BR Fulton Construction, K&K Paving with Rod Eady and Horton staff.

Living on that road, we would liek to applaud all th employees involved with this process. As we all know this is a very busy road but they went out of their way to do a quick yet fantastic job, completing the road while not causing any inconvenience with traffic.

For us we were concerned about the fact that our driveway was paved and the end had to be cut out and tied back in with the road.

Rob Fulton, his staff, K&K employees and Rod Eady ensureed all would be good and they were absolutely correct. all of these people further followed up with us to ensure we were happy. They were awesome adn certainly did a fabulous job.

They should all be commended for their work on Thomson Road. The pavement, the shoulder of the road, everything turned out perfect and is great to drive on.

Thanks to everyone. A job well done!

Resident of Thomson Road

We have prepared materials from the unique vantage point of one of Canada’s worst carbon monoxide related tragedies, in which CO claimed the lives of a family of four from Woodstock, ON and was the impetus for the creation of the Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education.  This new law makes carbon monoxide alarms mandatory in all Ontario homes with fuel-burning appliances or attached garages, no matter the age of the home.

Referencing our information on your web or social media sites will be useful to help convey details about this new law and the April 15 enforcement date.  The focal point of the package is our ‘Get to Know CO’ three part video series that covers ‘Complying with Ontario’s New CO Alarm Law’, ‘Sources and Symptoms of CO’, and how to ‘Protect your Family with CO Alarms’. 

To preview and share the ‘Get To Know CO’ three part series use the following links:

Go to the following link for an updated CO Alarm Law Homeowner Guide (PDF) and a CO Alarm infographic at http://www.endthesilence.ca/stay-safe/ontarios-new-co-alarm-law.  Attached is a big box web banner to link back to to the same URL.  Other resources are available at that same link.

The Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education, a charitable organization, was established to ensure the Hawkins family – Laurie, Richard, Cassandra and Jordan – who died from CO poisoning in Woodstock in 2008, did not perish in vain.  Our mission continues in Ontario by encouraging citizens to comply and to educate all Canadians about the dangers of CO and how to properly protect families.

Please post this information for the April 15th enforcement date and beyond.  This information will continue to be relevant for months as residents come into compliance with this new law, supporting the ongoing CO education efforts from your local fire service.  As part of your social media outreach, please watch for, follow and share the activity coming from the Foundation on Twitter @HawkinsGignac and facebook.com/HawkinsGignacFoundation.
