High River - Fire Chief Zebedee asks children to share photos of family fun with firefighters by submitting them to the Town’s Photo Contest! Read on to learn more about Thanksgiving Safety Tips.

This weekend many of us will be enjoying a Thanksgiving meal with our families or in a small gathering. The High River Fire Department has put together a list of safety tips with reminders when cooking and decorating for holidays. Tips can be reviewed on the Town’s new website.

“Thanksgiving falls into Fire Prevention Week and marks the start of other seasonal holidays where kitchen and decorating safety is important,” notes Fire Chief Cody Zebedee. “It’s also important at this time of year to check and replace batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. We want to make sure people stay safe and enjoy Thanksgiving, Hallowe’en, Christmas and other holidays around the corner.”

Usually at this time of year, the Town’s firefighters share information through fun school visits or Fire Hall tours, asking children to bring information home to their families. This year Chief Zebedee is encouraging everyone – especially children – to share your holiday photos by entering the Town’s Fall for High River Photo Contest.

“During these unprecedented times, we are coming up with new, creative ways to share safety information, “ added Chief Zebedee. “We would love to see your photos of Thanksgiving fun – and safety. Please hand your phones or cameras to your children so they can capture their own pictures to be eligible for children’s prizes.”

This fall, the Town’s Fire Department is starting a series of Fire Flash public education articles, beginning with a detailed look at the importance of Learning the Sounds of Fire Safety, this year's Fire Prevention Week message. Watch for more Fire Flash Tip Sheets every month.

Learn more about the Town’s Photo Contest and how to submit photos.
