The City of Charlottetown Fire Department is reminding property owners to ensure all exits, including bedroom windows, are clear and accessible.
With a lot of snow down and another storm on the way, Fire officials are stressing the importance of keeping up with snow removal for safety reasons.
Fire escapes, doors and bedroom windows must be free of snow and ice buildup in case of fire. Every sleeping room must have two means of escape. Every level of a residence, and every bedroom, should also have smoke alarms that can warn of the early stages of a fire and provide time to escape.
