Be prepared for freezing rain and high winds on weekend


The Public Safety Unit is advising the community to be prepared for inclement weather and icing conditions over the weekend.

A special weather statement issued by Environment Canada predicts that large amounts of rain are expected for Saturday, January 11th, turning to freezing rain and icing conditions that evening. By Sunday, wind gusts up to 60-70 km/h are expected to impact structures covered with ice such as tree limbs and power lines.

The following precautions can be taken:

  • Monitor the weather forecast on the Environment Canada website
  • Ensure your heating system is optimal (fuel levels, wood, pellets, etc)
  • Prepare to de-ice, shovel and clear water from sidewalks and driveways
  • In the case of a power outage, ensure you have enough emergency supplies to last at least 72 hours without electricity and have a generator on standby for sump pumps
  • Try not to travel unless necessary
For additional information on winter preparedness, alternative heat sources and emergency kits, visit the Emergency Preparedness page on or call 450-632-0635.
