Comox Fire Rescue open house

Saturday, Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The members of Comox Fire Rescue would like to invite members of the public to attend their annual Fire Prevention Week Open House. The event is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. This event 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 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 Comox Fire Chief 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 though 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.”

The Comox fire station is at 1870 Noel Ave. across from the Comox Recreation Centre.
