Fire Prevention Week takes place Oct. 6 to Oct. 12. The Morinville Fire Department is offering one Grade 1-4 student from Morinville Public School, and one from École Notre Dame Elementary School a chance to get a ride to school in a fire truck. That ride will take place the week of Oct. 21 to Oct. 25.
Details on the contest and how to enter can be found at www.morinville.ca/fire.
This year’s Fire Prevention theme is “Not Every Hero Wears A Cape: Plan and Practice Your Escape.”
The Morinville Fire Department will also be at Home Hardware’s Grand Re-Opening on Oct. 19 promoting fire safety products.
