The members of the Comox Fire Rescue would like to invite members of the public to attend their annual Fire Prevention Week Open House. This Open House is scheduled for Saturday October 13th from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.. This event helps celebrate Fire Prevention Week in Comox. This is a great opportunity for citizens to come into the fire station and meet their local firefighters.

Firefighters will be on-hand to handout important fire safety information in addition, conduct tours of the fire station and the equipment housed in it. Assistant Chief Lariviere states: “Fire Prevention Week is an important time of year for us in the fire service. 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.”
