Vehicle Theft Notice & Safety Tips

The Town of Naicam would like to remind everyone to be pro-active in regards to the security of their vehicles and personal belongings as there have been numerous thefts and attempted thefts in our community.

 

 

Safety Tips:

  1. Lock your vehicle
  2. Take your keys and belongings
  3. Never hide a second set of keys in your vehicle
  4. Park in well-lit areas
  5. Never leave your car running with the keys in the ignition
  6. Completely close car windows when leaving your vehicle unattended
  7. Don’t leave valuables in plain sight
  8. Park your vehicle with wheels turned toward the side. Some car thieves use tow trucks to steal vehicles, so make your car tough to tow away. Wheels should also be turned to the side in driveways and parking lots so the vehicle can only be towed from the front.
  9. If your vehicle is rear-wheel drive, back into your driveway. Rear wheels lock on four­ wheel drive vehicles, making them difficult to Front-wheel drive vehicles should be parked front-end first.
  10. Always use your emergency brake when parked. In addition to ensuring safety, using the emergency brake makes your car harder to tow.
  11. If you have a garage, use it. Parking your vehicle inside protects it from thieves as well as from Mother Nature.
  12. When parking in a garage, lock the garage as well as your vehicle doors. By locking both the garage and vehicle doors, you greatly improve the chances of deterring a thief
  13. Never leave the registration or title in your car. A car thief will use these to sell your stolen vehicle. File the title at your home or office and carry your registration in your purse or wallet.

Town of Naicam Receives Canada 150 Grant to Upgrade SportsPlex

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Naicam, SK – Dec 29, 2016 – The Town of Naicam is embarking on a major upgrade to the Viking SportsPlex, in order to provide improved accessibility, safety and functionality of the community facility. The Government of Canada announced on December 21st, 2016 that the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP) is investing $4,390,906 in 62 recreational and cultural projects across Saskatchewan. The Viking SportsPlex in Naicam is among the 62 projects approved under this grant.

The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program will provide 50% of costs amounting to $42,250 for the project, while the Town of Naicam will provide the remainder of the funding, gathered from a variety of sources.  Upgrades currently approved under the grant include new rubber flooring, taller safety glass in the rink, a kids play area, a wheelchair lift to the bleacher area and some landscaping at the curling rink. The project is scheduled to be completed by September 30, 2017, with large portions of the project finished as early as March 31, 2017.

“It is important for us to be able to provide the residents of Naicam and our visiting spectators, players and groups with an accessible, safe and enjoyable place to gather,” says Mayor Rodger Hayward. “These upgrades will not only make our facility safer and more accessible, but will improve functionality and usability for years to come. Without grants like this, these sorts of major upgrades just wouldn’t be possible for a small communities like ours.”

The Town of Naicam is a community of approximately 700 people in East Central Saskatchewan approximately 224 kilometers north of Regina and 50 km south of Melfort. From youth skating and curling to adult hockey, and from bonspiels and tournaments to community fundraisers, the Viking Sports Plex is the hub of the Naicam and District recreational community. All of the sports teams in the town are called the “Naicam Vikings” in honour of the original Norwegian and Scandanavian people that settled the area. The facility also houses a concession booth, mezzanine, three sheet curling rink, and virtual golf simulator.
