How you can keep safe during snow

During a snow storm please:

  • park in your driveway, not on the street
  • remove snow from your sidewalk and footpaths
  • clear snow from catchbasins
  • ​clear snow within 1 meter of any fire hydrant near your property
  • ​observe on-street parking restrictions
  • check in with your neighbours to see if they need anything

For after hours emergencies (4:30pm to 8:00am) please call 604-990-3666.

Safe driving during snow

You can keep yourself, your family, and other pedestrians and drivers safe, by following a few simple guidelines when the streets are icy or visibility is poor:

  • Slow down, and be sure to leave plenty of space between your car and the one in front of you
  • Check your tires and tire pressure monthly to ensure you'll have good traction on slippery roads
  • Make sure you have plenty of windshield washer fluid
  • Keep your gas tank at least half full at all times, in case you have an emergency
  • Get or make an emergency car kit
