Health Canada: Recalls and safety alerts  

Holidays are a time for family, friends and making memories. So don’t set your Holidays ablaze!

 

Find out how to properly string Holiday lights and decorations so they don’t cause a fire:  

 

·         Use lights that have the mark of an accredited certification agency such as CSA, cUL or cETL. Check the Healthy Canadians Recalls and Safety Alerts Database before buying or using lights to find out about the latest recalls.

·         Choose the right light for the job: light strings and other decorations are rated for indoor or outdoor use. Ensure that indoor lights and decorations are only used inside.

·         Check the light strings and extension cords you use, discarding any that are frayed or have exposed wires, loose connections or broken light sockets.

·         Avoid plugging too many lights and decorations into an outlet. Overloaded circuits can overheat and start a fire.

Inter generational Community Project – Supporting Social Participation and Inclusion for Seniors

[A team of LSA students (Sec. 3-5) enjoyed their final workshop session for this school year with a group of enthusiastic seniors from our Laval community. Over the past couple months a group of LSA students have been involved in an inter generational project providing support and instruction on the introduction and use of ipad technology. Both students and seniors alike, enjoyed the opportunity to connect, share stories and support their learning goals. We are looking forward to continuing the project in the coming 2018-19 school year! ]
