Fire and smoke can spread very quickly, so be prepared in advance with these simple steps for home fire escape planning:
Assess the needs of everyone in your home
• Identify anyone who requires assistance to get out of the home safely, such as small children or older adults
Make sure that you have working smoke alarms on every storey of the home and outside all sleeping areas
• Make sure everyone in the home knows the sound of the smoke alarm
Identify all possible exits (doors and windows) and make sure they work
• Know two ways out of all areas, if possible
Everyone must know what to do when the smoke alarm sounds
• Assign someone to help those who need assistance
• Identify a safe meeting place outside
• Call the fire department from a neighbour’s home or cell phone
Practice your home fire escape plan
• Have everyone participate
• Make changes to your plan if necessary

  • Thanks to the Government of Ontario’s Main Street Revitalization Initiative, we were able to install three wayfinding kiosks in the Harbourtown Centre: Husky the Musky in McLeod Park, Matheson Street South dock, and the Kenora Recreation Centre. 
The kiosks provide visitors and residents with a visual guide to the downtown core and pinpointing local business districts. These information kiosks are a continued implementation of the wayfinding program initially developed in 2017.

The funding is made available by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs for all single and lower-tier municipalities to implement local Community Improvement Plans and invest in municipal infrastructure to improve their downtown and main street areas. Funding is upfront, allocation-based and projects are selected by municipal councils. The City of Kenora received $51,000 for this project. 
Investments in main street areas help small business and tourism grow by attracting residents and visitors to communities.
