Starting today, the District of Mission has begun providing free salt-and-sand mix.
It is available for residents at Firehall #1 to help treat icy sidewalks and driveways.
Up to two five-gallon pails of salt and sand mix are available per vehicle at Firehall #1, 33330 7th Avenue.
Residents must bring their own pails and shovel.
In lieu of any charge, the district encourages residents picking up mix to consider making a donation to local charities that help those in need through the winter months.
With cold temperatures and more snow in the forecast, the district is reminding residents to be prepared for continued winter conditions.
