Warman Fire Rescue Message in a Minute: #3 Smoke Detectors (yellow Detector)
Smoke detectors save lives- is yours up to the task? If it looks yellow, it isn’t!
Smoke detectors don’t last forever, neither do the batteries. Did you know that even the wired ones have a backup battery that needs to be changed annually?
Yellow detectors are extinct- if you have one it has expired! Check your white ones for an expiry date with a simple ¼ turn and look at the back. And NEVER disconnect one if it is beeping- it is telling you to check it!
Protect your family and check your Detectors annually.

Great Plains College, along with the City of Warman, proudly hosted the 5th Annual Day of Service on September 25, 2019. This year students from Great Plains College and City of Warman staff volunteered by raking outdoors and visiting with residents at Warman Mennonite Special Care Home, helping make cookie jars for the upcoming craft and bake sale at Diamond House and helping with a community cleanup by picking up litter around Warman.
Volunteers gathered at Great Plains College in the morning before heading out to their respective service positions. Jill Jenkins, Regional Manager of Great Plains College, spoke about the program, “This event is really about the meaning of community and giving back to your community. Every year we do a debriefing at the end (with the volunteers) and it amazes me how much people gain from a day like today and how it really gives us a sense of the meaning of community, and the meaning of gratitude.” Volunteers were fortunate to spend time visiting with and working alongside seniors at the local senior homes. Jenkins encouraged them to be mindful of the fact that “these are people who have given to the community themselves in so many ways, for many years.”
Jenkins introduced Mayor Sheryl Spence who also also wanted to emphasize that point. “Those people in the nursing homes have been in our community for years and years and they have given before us, so let’s honour them.” Mayor Spence also spoke about the relationship between Great Plains College and the City of Warman and the importance of serving within our community. “Great Plains College and the City of Warman have had a working partnership for almost 20 years that has developed into a friendship. The seeds have been planted so deep, the roots have spread out so wide, that I know that it doesn’t matter who leads these organizations, this fine work will continue on.” Mayor Spence thanked the volunteers for their willingness to serve. “The work that we do benefits all ages, from little ones to the more senior ones in our community, and all the people in between.”
Robin Bendig, Program Co-ordinator who spearheaded the Day of Service five years ago, said, “It’s important to know that we reach out to the community agencies and see what’s important to them.” She explained how the Day of Service initiative has given in a variety of ways over the last five years from clothing drives for children’s clothing to hosting fun activities for local daycares to attend, to volunteering at the local senior care homes as well as the community litter pick up which benefits the entire community of Warman.
Thank you to Great Plains College and the City of Warman staff who volunteered their time to give back to our community.

Here is a sample of what you will find:
Saskatchewan home and property owners can start pruning their elm trees again on September 1, as the annual ban on pruning elm trees ends.
Provincial regulations prohibit pruning elm trees from April 1 to August 31 each year to reduce the risk of spreading Dutch Elm Disease (DED). The elm bark beetles that can carry DED are most active during this time of year, and fresh cuts from pruning can attract the insects to healthy elm trees.
Regular pruning, outside the ban period, helps keep elm trees healthier and less vulnerable to all types of diseases, including DED. Taking away the dead branches makes trees less attractive to elm bark beetles.
The early fall weather can be ideal for tree maintenance and, with leaves still on the trees, homeowners have an easier time seeing and removing dead or unhealthy branches. It’s important to prune properly, whether you hire someone or do it yourself.
Incorrect pruning can actually spread DED and other tree diseases. Under provincial regulations, commercial pruners of elms must complete a recognized training program or be supervised by someone who has completed the program.
It is illegal to transport or store elm firewood; the wood can carry the beetles that spread DED. Dispose of elm wood promptly by burning or burying it in a location approved by your local municipality.
To find out more about proper elm disposal in your area, check with your local municipal authority. For more information, or if you suspect an elm tree may have DED, call the Ministry of Environment’s general inquiry line at 1-800-567-4224.
