Saved by the Beep

SEPTEMBER 28, 2023

A working smoke alarm could save lives by giving residents time to escape.

Being prepared to act in the event of a fire can start with simply pressing the test button and having the confidence that working smoke alarms are in your home.

Lives can be saved by regularly testing smoke alarms at least once a month, refreshing batteries at least once a year and replacing smoke alarms older than 10 years.

Last year in Ontario, 133 people lost their lives to deadly fires — the highest number in more than 20 years.

Smoke alarms have been required by legislation to be installed on every storey of a residence in Ontario since 2006 and that includes vacation homes, cabins, trailers, recreational vehicles and cottages.

Landlords are required to test alarms annually, after the battery is replaced and after every change of tenancy.

Renters must notify the landlord immediately if a smoke alarm in not working properly.

Major Gas Line Leak on Pine Street now being Repaired.
Some Homes Without Gas Service Until Later This Afternoon

At 11:30 pm on Saturday June 10, 2023 Enbridge Gas were able to tap and begin repairs to a severed gas line on Pine Street in the Township of Ignace.

At approximately 6:00 pm that same evening, a third-party contractor working to install fibre optics in the community of Ignace, accidentally severed a gas line on Pine Street.

Interim Mayor Baigrie and Council reported that there were no serious issues with any residents that arose from the severed gas line and that Enbridge Gas was able to repair the severed line. The safety and health of our residents is always of the highest priority, and we are relieved that this incident did not cause any significant issues for our residents.

Enbridge is currently still working on the severed line and making all necessary repairs. As such, all residents on the SOUTH side of Lily Pad Lake Road are without gas services until later this afternoon. Enbridge is working diligently to ensure all repairs are being made in a timely manner.

Full gas service should be restored by sometime this afternoon.

At this time, we do not have all of the details of this incident, how and why this happened but we do know that the third-party contractor remained on site to assist in managing this situation.
