Winter isn’t quite over yet and if you’ve had enough of shoveling snow and battling ice, maybe it’s time to call in professional help.
Falls on snowy and icy sidewalks are a serious health hazard in Calgary. During one week alone this winter, Calgary EMS responded to over 200 calls related to slips and falls. As a home or business owner, you’re responsible for ensuring that public sidewalks that border your properly are kept snow and ice free. If someone has a fall, you could be held liable. Dealing with ice buildup around your property is easier and more environmentally friendly these days thanks to green de-icers.
Shoveling snow can be dangerous – it’s like working out at the gym. After a heavy snowfall, hospitals prepare themselves for an influx of patients arriving at the ER with heart related problems. March is usually the snowiest month of the year in Calgary so there could still be plenty of shoveling in the forecast before spring finally arrives.
With the repeated freeze/thaw cycles that are typical in Calgary at this time of the year, ice buildup can become a serious problem. When you venture out onto slippery streets be sure to take precautions. Wear flat soled shoes and use traction devices that slip onto the bottom of your shoes. They’re inexpensive and very effective. Walking poles will help you to keep your balance if you slip, and they give a bit of extra exercise to boot.
