Xatśūll receives smoke alarms from Williams Lake FD

Xatśūll has received 61 smoke/carbon monoxide alarms from the Williams Lake Fire Department.
Kúkpi7 Sheri Sellars says she appreciates the help to keep the community safe.
The smoke alarms are a part of a larger home inspection program, according to Fire Chief Erick Peterson.
“I am so happy Xatśūll can utilize the smoke alarms. COVID has caused major issues in implementing the full program here in Williams Lake so we have adapted it as best we can to get the information out and increase public safety.”
Xatśūll will be hiring someone to install the fire alarms in community homes.
“The best way to protect your family and home from fire is to install, properly maintain, and test household smoke alarms,” says Peterson.
Over the last five years, 78 per cent of structure fires were residential and the majority of fire deaths occur in residential occupancies.
