Visit the Parksville Fire Hall on Oct. 4

There are a lot of activities planned for Fire Prevention Week this year, Oct. 4-10

Each year, the Parksville Volunteer Fire Department participates in Fire Prevention Week and will again this year open its doors to the public on Sunday, October 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Fire Prevention Week is being recognized from Oct. 4-10. The open house will take place at the fire hall which is located at 160 Jensen Avenue West, Parksville.

Members of the community are encouraged to drop by for a little fun and most importantly, to learn some possible lifesaving strategies for fire prevention. Firefighters will be giving tours of the station, including trucks and equipment so be sure to bring your camera. The RCMP will be on site as well, providing a child restraint technician to conduct inspection of car seats for the public. If you would like to have your car seat inspected, please bring your car manual as well as the restraint manual so these can be referenced during the inspection. Also, the seat should be installed in the vehicle prior to arriving at the fire hall.

“This open house is an opportunity to showcase the services we provide to the community and for our department to provide fire safety information to our residents,” said Fire Chief Doug Banks.

The theme for this year is Hear the Beep Where You Sleep, which underscores the importance of having a working smoke alarm in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area and on every level of your home, including the basement.   — City of Parksville news release
