The Morinville Fire Department is partnering with the National Fire Protection Association to mark the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Month by hosting an Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 22. The free drop-in event will offer a variety of activities aimed to encourage residents to practice fire safety and prevention. Activities include:
- A FREE hot dog lunch, courtesy of Chris & Tracey’s No Frills
- Fire truck, equipment and fire hall tours
- Motor vehicle collision rescue demos
The Open House is one of many Fire Prevention Month activities taking place in town and nationwide. To support this year’s campaign key message, “Fire Won’t Wait, Plan Your Escape”, Morinville’s volunteer firefighters will also be on site to share information and resources about fire prevention and safety.
“Many people don’t realize today’s homes burn faster than ever, so planning a way out is essential”, explained Brad Boddez, Fire Chief/Manager, Community Safety Services. “By hosting an Open House, we can engage with and teach effective ways to stay safe from fire.”
