TIVFD ~ Smoke Alarm Campaign Winners

Thanks all whom participated in the February TIVFD Smoke Alarm Campaign. 

If you were able to sound your smoke alarm when we telephoned, you were entered into a draw for one of three $50.00 grocery certificates for the 49th Parallel Grocery in Chemainus.  We wish to thank the 49th Parallel Grocery for helping out with the prizes. 

The three winners of the gift certificates are:  Bob Pickell, Francie Beltgens, and Don Sinclair. 

But everyone else who has a working smoke alarm is really a winner too!  And if you have a Thetis Island mail box and were entered into the draw, you will find a little something in your box from the TIVFD in the coming days, with our thanks for playing.

Ticks ~ it's that season...

Now that warmer temperatures have arrived in some areas, so have some of the other little critters we expect to see each spring, in particular, TICKS!!!  A few Field Services personnel have advised that ticks have been spotted in both the Kamloops and Kelowna areas.  As temperatures are rising throughout many areas of the province, we should be aware that ticks are present when out walking, hiking or biking in the hills, wooded areas or grasslands. It is important to take precautions when going out in these type of areas.

Fun Fact: Did you know that the most common ticks in BC are:

·         The Rocky Mountain Wood Tick, which can be found in the interior dry belt from the U.S border north to Williams Lake and east to Alberta and,

·         The Western Black-Legged Tick, which can be found in the moist coastal areas of Vancouver Island and the mainland?

 If you find a tick on yourself, or your beloved pet, and you wish to remove it, be cautious not to crush the tick as this could cause the tick to inject it’s stomach contents into your skin. Please refer to the link below for the most appropriate removal method. For concerns or assistance removing a tick, please contact your family doctor or  visit a walk-in medical clinic . 

For further information please take a look, and share, the following information, which explains the various types of ticks, preventative measures and precautions you can take when dealing with these little critters. http://www.agf.gov.bc.ca/cropprot/ticksbc.htm. For information regarding ticks and your dogs please follow the provided link: http://www.petwave.com/Dogs/Dog-Health-Center/Skin-Disorders/Ticks.aspx.

Also, please click here to view a WorkSafeBC hazard alert for ticks.
