A message from the Britannia Fire Deptartment

Do you have enough fire fighting coverage on your property? What about the contents and property itself? These are things that sometimes are overlooked when you purchase or renew your insurance. When things happen that are out of your control, be sure you are prepared. Take a look at your coverage. We don’t want you to find out the hard way.

Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory

This Advisory applies to residents and users located in the Hamlet of Greenstreet (RM of Britannia) effective April 16, 2019 and until further notice

Clause 36(1)(a) of The Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2010 this Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory is issued due to depressurization caused by water plant maintenance and therefore the safety of the Hamlets drinking water supply cannot be ensured at all times.  Therefore, pursuant to Clause 36(1)(b) of The Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2010, consumers must be notified to:

  • Boil all water, used for drinking purposes, for at least one (1) minute, at a rolling boil, prior to use;
  • Boil water to be used for other activities where it may be ingested, including:
    • brushing teeth or soaking false teeth;
    • washing fruits and vegetables;
    • food or drink which will not be subsequently heated; and
    • ice cubes;
  • Do not use the water for washing dishes, unless the water has been boiled or the dishes are sanitized   in another fashion. Washed dishes and utensils can be soaked in a bleach water solution (approximately 2 tablespoons of bleach per gallon or 10 ml of bleach per liter of water) for at least two minutes after being washed to kill any bacteria which may be present.
  • Note: Do not mix bleach with soaps or detergents.
  • Do not drink from any public drinking fountains supplied with water from the public water supply;
  • Ensure that younger children and infants are sponge bathed;
  • Use an alternative water source known to be safe, if they do not wish to boil the water; and
  • Consult with your physician if you have cuts or rashes that are severe before using the water.
  • Under most circumstances, there is no need to boil water used for other household purposes. Adults, adolescents and older children may shower, bathe or wash using tap water but should avoid swallowing the water.
  • Laundry may be washed in tap water, either by hand or by machine.
  • This Advisory is effective immediately, and will not be lifted until the water supply is determined to be completely safe.If you require any additional information, please contact the following:

FREE FARM SAFETY COURSE

On average, 13 people are killed on Saskatchewan farms each year. Of these fatal injuries, 75% involve machinery such as grain trucks, semis, tractors and combines. Most incidents occur in the farm yard and of all serious injuries that happen, 14% involve youth.  (Statistics by the Saskatchewan Farm Injury Surveillance Program at the University of Saskatchewan.)

The Saskatchewan Safety Council has recently developed an interactive online safety training program for farmers and ranchers, and, it’s free.

The goal of this 3-hour training program is to reduce the number of these injuries and fatalities.

On this page are a variety of small linked graphics that may be used to share this program.

Thank you for working with us to achieve a safe Saskatchewan.
