On March 12-13, 2013, Teresa Chilkowich, AEA’s Regional Energy Project Coordinator for the Dehcho, visited Wrigley. Teresa offered a “lunch & learn” session covering Home Winterization and Burn it Smart tips. Twelve community members enjoyed some homemade bannock and stew while Teresa discussed and demonstrated various energy-saving devices. Teresa also shared tips on using wood stoves more efficiently and safely. Each participant went home with an energy-saving device to help them reduce their energy bills and keep their homes warmer or safer. In addition, Teresa provided a chimney cleaning brush and a set of 3 extension rods to the Pehdzeh Ki First Nation band office for community members to sign-out. This will make it possible for anyone in the community to borrow this equipment for cleaning the creosote deposits out of their wood stove chimneys more often.
