Holiday Fire Safety

Please remember to be mindful of fire prevention safety during the holidays. The Town of Morinville and the Morinville Fire Department want everyone to stay safe. Please practice our important safety tips.

Holiday Fire Safety Tips
  • Ensure you have working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms that are less than 10 years old.
  • Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant.
  • Place Christmas trees at least 1 metre (3 ft) from fireplaces or any other heat source.
  • Water live Christmas trees on a regular basis (trees should have fresh green needles).
  • Keep lit candles away from decorations and other items that can burn.
  • Keep children and pets away from lit candles.
  • Don’t overload electrical outlets and replace broken lights and cords.
  • Turn off all strings of lights before leaving home or going to bed.
  • Stay in the kitchen while cooking on the stovetop.
  • Use only clean, dry seasoned firewood in your fireplace.
  • Have a home escape plan that everyone in the home knows.

Fire department history

In March 1950, at a Board of Trade meeting, a motion was passed that the town was in need of a twenty-two man volunteer brigade and a 1950 Dodge 3 Ton fire truck was purchased. A tower was erected with a siren behind the town office to alert the firefighters as calls came in. The Don Found Fire Station was opened in October 1986.
