Meet Buster Snow, Devon’s newest addition

Be like Buster and volunteer to help clear snow for those in need

Devon FCSS is proud to introduce Buster Snow, the new face of the Snow Buster Program and he is looking for local volunteers to be like him and help those in need shovel snow from their sidewalks and driveways.

The main goal of the Snow Buster Program is to provide snow removal assistance to: seniors, those who are permanently or temporarily disabled or those who may need a bit of extra help clearing snow due to other reasons.

Be a Registered Volunteer Snow Buster
To become a Registered Volunteer Snow Buster, all volunteers must first have a valid criminal and vulnerable persons record check. Devon FCSS staff are available to assist prospective volunteers with obtaining these checks if needed at no charge.

Successful volunteers will be added to a mailing list and when a request for snow removal is received, an email will be sent out to the list for volunteers to respond directly to the client when they are available.

Be a Neighbourly Volunteer Snow Buster
Don’t want to register, but still want to lend a hand? Then become a Neighbourly Volunteer Snow Buster! If someone in the neighbourhood needs a helping hand, be neighbourly like Buster and with their permission, just go ahead and shovel their sidewalk and/or driveway.

“Promoting ways for our community to help each other when in need is a core value of our Council,” said Mayor Ralph. “The Snow Buster Program is a great resource for our Devon FCSS department to connect residents who need an extra hand with someone willing to help.”

Those interested in becoming a Snow Buster or registering to become a client can call 780-987-8308 or email CSOC@devon.ca.
