Preparing for high winds

***The wind warning for The City of Calgary has ended.

Environment Canada is telling Calgarians to expect 90 kilometre per hour winds today.

The Calgary Fire Department asks Calgarians to prepare for the inclement weather by walking around the exterior of their homes and businesses and securing or bringing inside loose items.

In November, untethered items and debris caused interruptions to travel and posed danger to Calgarians.

Tying-down barbecues to balconies and disconnecting natural gas attachments is a must, especially for people living in a high-level apartment or condo.

Please only call 9-1-1 in-case of emergency. If a tree is downed or shingles come loose, please do not activate the 9-1-1 system unless the problem poses a danger to people's life or property.

Calgarians can use the 3-1-1 system for non-emergency issues during a wind storm.

Thank you and remember, safety first!
