Celebrate Canada Day safely

Barbecuing is one of the great pleasures of summer and Caledon Fire and Emergency Services wants to make sure everyone enjoys the season safely.

“Before you fire up that barbecue, check the tank and hose for leaks,” said Dave Pelayo, Chief Fire Prevention Officer. “Remember that barbecues are for outdoor use only. Using a barbecue indoors can create carbon monoxide – an odourless, colourless, poisonous gas – and breathing in carbon monoxide is extremely harmful.” 

Grill Safely:

·        Do not leave barbecue grills unattended.

·        Always make sure the gas grill lid is open before lighting it.

·        Barbecue grills should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.

·        Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grill area.

·        If someone is burned, run cool water over the wound for three to five minutes and seek medical attention if necessary.


During Canada Day celebrations fireworks may only be set off on July 1 and only on private property. Setting off of fireworks on public property, parks, roads or sidewalks is strictly prohibited.

Retailers can only sell fireworks during the 10 days prior to Canada Day, starting June 21, 2017. All retailers must purchase a permit prior to selling any type of fireworks, which can be picked up at Caledon Fire and Emergency Services, 6211 Old Church Rd, Caledon East, at a cost of $179.00.

Fireworks Safety Tips:

·        Keep sparklers away from children. Hot sparklers can burn.

·        Appoint a responsible person to be in charge.

·        Carefully read and follow the directions on fireworks packaging.

·        Always keep a hose or pail of water close by when discharging fireworks.

·        Place discharged fireworks in a bucket full of water, well away from buildings, and combustible materials such as garbage, trees, or dry grass.

Watershed Information

Credit Valley Conservation advises that our watershed has received 20-80 mm of rain this morning in addition to the 5-25 mm of rain recorded yesterday. The upper watershed, specifically Orangeville, has experienced the most rain, approximately 100 mm since yesterday, while the lower watershed has accumulated 50-60 mm rain since yesterday.


Environment Canada forecasts another 10-20 mm of rain for the upper watershed and 1-10 mm for lower watershed today in addition to a slight chance of severe thunderstorm over parts of Southern Ontario.


Some of our watercourses are at or above bank full. Some areas in the upper watershed have reported minor flooding. Flooding of low lying areas is anticipated with water levels remaining high through the weekend. 

As a result, local streams and rivers will become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams.  Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.   


CVC will continue to monitor the watercourse and the weather.  This Flood Watch will be updated Saturday June 24, 2017, 2:00 pm.


For more information on this Flood Watch message, contact CVC during office hours at 905- 670-1615.  To report a flood afterhours, please call 1-800-215-8505.
