  *** ALERT: Snow Loading and Roof Failures ***
 
Recently, heavy snow has caused roof collapses. The roofs of many buildings in Ontario may be carrying a greater weight of snow than is allowed for in their structural designs.

A cubic foot of snow can weigh from seven pounds for snow that is new and dry to 30 pounds for old, compacted snow. Rain falling on accumulated snow will add even more weight. Drifting snow may put excessive loads on the areas where it piles up, for example against equipment or at walls between roof levels.

When snow removal is necessary, it should be remembered that unsafe procedures may cause a collapse. It should also be remembered that workers on a roof must have adequate fall protection and that workers and others nearby can be injured by snow being dumped from a roof.

The pending rain will add significantly to the weight on the roofs especially in the north of the township.

 *** Water Tanker Shuttle Accreditation ***

Great news for Ramara Fire & Rescue Services and our residents.  Our department has now reached an industrial status for Water Tanker Shuttle Accreditation. If you are an industrial business this may help improve your insurance rates.

Ramara Fire and Rescue Service staff worked diligently as a team of professionals to acquire Water Tanker Shuttle Accreditation. This accreditation ensures that Ramara Fire and Rescue Service can supply enough water to fight a major fire in an area that is not serviced by hydrants. Achieving this means that rural residents in non-hydrant areas of the Township may be eligible for a reduced rate on their home insurance. Check with your insurance company!  A copy of the certification letter is available by clicking the link below or at the Township Administration office.  If you require further information please contact Ramara Fire and Rescue Services at 705-484-5374, ext. 253.
