Parkland Ambulance Paramedics are reminding the public to exercise caution during spring cleaning.
If cleaning household cabinets or dark corners of the garage, dispose of used cleaning chemicals or unlabelled chemicals safely. Follow the instructions when handling any chemicals.
Store chemicals out of the reach of children and pets, properly labelling the containers to prevent accidental poisoning.
When trying to extend one’s reach, residents should do so safely using a proper step stool or ladder rather than an overturned pail or chair.
