Hurricane Fiona: Halifax mayor urges people to think about fire safety during potential power outages

Halifax Mayor Mike Savage urged people on Thursday, ahead of Hurricane Fiona's arrival, to think about fire safety during power outages and using battery-powered lights instead of an open flame. He also advised people to follow manufacturer instructions on generators to avoid possible issues. Savage went on to call Hurricane Fiona a "serious threat," but praised emergency management officials for coming together to ensure plans are in place to respond promptly to impacts from the storm.
