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.

- 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.
