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 email@example.com
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.
The Township of Scugog wants to ensure that our fire services are safe, responsible, efficient and sustainable. In order to do this, we have undertaken a Fire Organizational and Operational Review.
Scugog has retained Dillon Consulting to assist in reviewing our fire services. The starting point for this process is the Fire Organizational and Operational Review.
Dillon Consulting has completed the final draft report for the Fire Organizational and Operational review and will present to Council on Monday, June 23, 2014.
