Comox Fire Rescue open house Saturday

The members of Comox Fire Rescue would like to invite the public to attend their annual Fire Prevention Week Open House.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The open house marks the end of Fire Prevention Week in Canada.

This is a great opportunity for citizens to come into the fire station and meet their local firefighters. Firefighters will be on-hand to hand out important fire safety information and conduct tours of fire vehicles and equipment.

“Fire Prevention Week is an important time of year for us in the fire service,” said Chief Gord Schreiner. “It is the focal point of our year round fire safety programs. Through our many programs we endeavour to reach as many of our citizens as we can. We know through our experience that fire prevention really does pay huge dividends in our community. One of the most important fire safety tips we can pass on is to ensure that you and your family are protected by a working smoke alarm. Working smoke alarms really do save lives.”

Comox Fire Rescue is located at 1870 Noel Ave., across from the Comox Recreation Centre.
