LaSalle Fire Service News / Announcements


Chief Thiessen encourages LaSalle residents to stay warm and safe this January!

Heating Safety Tips from Chief Thiessen:

  • Have your fuel-burning appliances inspected annually by a registered contractor.
  • Your chimney may have problems you can’t see. Have your chimneys cleaned and inspected annually.
  • Keep vents for furnaces and heating appliances free of ice, snow, and debris to prevent deadly carbon monoxide build-up.
  • Watch for smoke coming into the room from the woodstove or fireplace. Chimney may be blocked or have a faulty damper control mechanism.
  • Burn dry wood in fireplaces and woodstoves to reduce build-up of dangerous creosote in chimneys.
  • Protect your home from sparks. Use a fire screen around the fireplace.
  • Burn dry wood in fireplaces and woodstoves to reduce build-up of dangerous creosote in chimneys.
  • Allow fireplace and woodstove ashes to cool before disposing. Put in metal container with lid. Keep the container outside.
  • Keep anything that can burn a safe distance away from wood stoves and fireplaces.
  • Keep space heaters at least 1 metre away from things that burn i.e. curtains, upholstery, clothing.
  • Replace worn or damaged electrical wires and connections on vehicle block heaters and extension cords.

LaSalle Fire Continues to Promote Social Distancing While Maintaining Services

January 21, 2022

Due to the challenges and public health restrictions associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), LaSalle Fire Services has temporarily suspending public access to the Fire Station and some non-emergency activities.  These precautions are necessary to promote social distancing, and to ensure the resource capacity of our essential emergency services.

Please be assured there will be no disruption of normal emergency response services.

Residents are asked to contact us by phone or email for routine assistance or inquiries rather than attending the station.  Non-emergency and life-safety matters will continue to be addressed as usual; however, a screening questionnaire will be conducted prior to personal interaction with the public.  Station visits and tours will be suspended until further notice.

Our dedicated team will continue to provide effective public safety and fire protection services while protecting the health and safety of our staff, and your emergency services resources.
