CENTRAL ALGOMA COMMUNITY SAFETY AND WELLBEING PLAN
Under the Police Services Act 1990, Municipalities were legislated to develop and adopt a
Community Safety and Wellbeing (CWSB) plan.

The plan identifies key community priorities and strategies for addressing community concerns with safety and wellbeing and will evolve as partners and residents of each municipality collaborate and work together to better understand the needs of our communities.

SMOKE ALARMS
- Make sure you regularly test your smoke alarm. And when you change your clocks in the Spring and Fall, change your Smoke Alarm batteries. And if your alarm is more than 10 years old, replace it as Smoke Alarms do wear out..

The Boil Water Advisory for users of the water system in the Town of Bruce Mines and the Township of Plummer has been lifted by Algoma Public Health.

TO FLUSH OR NOT TO FLUSH!

Do you know what you can and can't put down your sinks or toilets? Flushing items like wipes or washing grease down the drain causes significant issues in homes, businesses, wastewater systems and the environment.

It can lead to blocked pipes and basement flooding, costly damage to municipal infrastructure and toxic overflows.
