Air quality precaution
A large fire is currently burning at a metal recycling facility in the southwest area of Sherwood Park. Residents in the area may notice the smoke smell and you may wish to avoid prolonged or strenuous activities outside as a precaution for the next several hours. An update will be issued once the fire is extinguished.
- Text with 9-1-1 service available in Strathcona County, starting August 1. This service is intended for the deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired communities. Register your mobile phone.
- Use a metal can with sand or a commercially-made ashtray to extinguish smoking materials. If throwing butts into the black cart, completely extinguish them first.
- Check your smoke alarms every month by either pushing the test button to ensure there is power, connect with Emergency Services (firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-464-8468) to book an appointment for a safety educator to test it for you, or follow the alarm manufacturer's instructions for testing. A working smoke alarm saves lives.
