Did you know that 35% of all fires in Nunavik are lit by kids and happen mostly during summer?

​Since the end of school and the nice weather are near, these are some fire safety tips to avoid fires during this period:

  • Store matches and lighters out of children's reach and sight.
  • Keep your filled and empty jerry cans in a locked shack.
     
  • Make sure young children are not left without supervision and educate them on fire's destructive power.

  • Establish clear rules and consequences about fire misuse.
  • And encourage them to participate in safe activities.

On behalf of the Civil Security Section of the KRG, have a safe and fun fire free summer.
