In view of the increasing weather-related power outages that we are experiencing, the Township of Scugog Emergency Municipal Control Group would like to create a database as to who has back-up generators.
If you are a business owner with a generator, do you have a back-up generator? If so, is it gas or diesel powered? How many hours would you be able to continue normal operations using your back-up generator? Please contact the Township of Scugog Fire Department to let us know. We are interested in compiling a list of locations with portable generators that could potentially be used as a warming centre in the event of an extended power outage. Fire Department contact information 905-985-2384 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Township of Scugog Fire Department would like to remind all residents and business owners to consider installing a back-up generator in the event of a power outage. Please ensure that portable generators are only used outdoors and carefully located to ensure that fumes do not enter the residence. Also please ensure that a carbon monoxide detector with battery backup is installed.
