  • You may have noticed the bagged meters and ‘no parking’ signs on Matheson Street.  We were hoping drivers would use this space as an extended lane to go through on Matheson Street or turn right on to Second Street. 
This lane extension is for use only while Chipman Street and First Street are under construction and while the bags are in place and the signs are up . 
Spread the word! 
Use that lane to get traffic moving and always manoeuvre safely and slowly in a construction zone.

  • DID YOU KNOW? Fireworks can ONLY be set off in the City of Kenora on specific holidays, between 7 pm and 11 pm.... AND Canada Day is one of those holidays! 🇨🇦😃
But why take the risk of fire, property damage, or burn injuries, when you can attend the fireworks display at the Whitecap Pavilion on July 1st at 10:30 pm. 
If you still choose to have your own fireworks display, be aware that you are completely responsible for the cost for Emergency Services to extinguish a fire and other damage caused by detonation of your own fireworks.

Here are some important safety tips to be followed:
• Appoint a responsible person to be in charge. Only adults who are aware of the hazards and essential safety precautions should handle and discharge fireworks.
• Carefully read and follow the label directions on fireworks packaging.
• Always keep a water hose or pail of water close by when discharging fireworks.
• Discharge fireworks well away from combustible materials like buildings, trees and dry grass.
• Keep onlookers a safe distance away, upwind from the area where fireworks are discharged.
• Light only one firework at a time and only when they are on the ground. Never try to light a firework in your hand or re-light dud fireworks. For dud fireworks, it is best to wait 30 minutes and soak them in a bucket of water. Dispose of them in a metal container.
• Discharge fireworks only if wind conditions do not create a safety hazard.
• Keep sparklers away from children. Sparklers burn extremely hot and can ignite clothing, cause blindness and result in severe burns. As the sparkler wire remains hot for some minutes after burnout, it should be immediately soaked in water to avoid injury.
• If someone gets burned, run cool water over the wound for three to five minutes and seek medical attention, if necessary.

For more information on fireworks regulations in the City of Kenora, please contact Fire Station One at 807-467-2090.
