On Wednesday, January 4, 10 fire halls across the city of Vancouver will be distributing free salt to residents between 9:00 am and 8:00 pm.
Supply will be limited, so residents are asked to take only as much as they need. Residents are also asked to bring their own bucket(s) and shovel(s), with a maximum of two buckets per household or business.
City officials and fire crews are hoping to provide enough salt to help people clear their sidewalks and driveways.
In return for the free salt, people are asked to consider making a donation to local charities.
