Errington Fire Department takes part in Fire Prevention Week

Open house scheduled for Oct. 5

The Errington Fire Department will host an open house on Saturday, Oct. 5 to help educate the community on fire safety and prevention.

The event will go from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is part of Fire Prevention Week, which is from Oct. 6 to Oct. 12. Fire departments across the country are hosting events to raise public awareness surrounding fire.

Fire prevention techniques, escape plan advice and wild fire information will all be discussed at Saturday’s event. One focus will be on properties that are susceptible to wild fires, and measures that could help prevent forest fires spreading on your property. Errington Fire Dept. Chief Troy Bater said although cooler weather is here, now is the best time to start preparing for next year’s fire season.

Aside from education, there will also be a BBQ and games.

The fire hall is located at 960 Errington Rd.
