Smoke Detectors 
Smoke detectors are intended to sound an alarm when they sense smoke. Smoke rises, so that is why detectors are near the celling in your home. Make sure there is a smoke detector on every level of the home, inside each bedroom, and outside each sleeping area.

 My neighbours dog keeps pooping on my yard – what do I do?


Not the pooper scooper!


Dear NTPS:

The first thing you should do is talk to your neighbor about the problem, and give them a roll of doggie doo picker uppers.  This should be enough to get them acting in a responsible manner.  If nothing else works, you can call 311 if you're within Winnipeg or call your local municipality and lodge a complaint – but that should be a final resort, not the first step. 

Good luck!
