Local fire fighters

Be a fire fighter for a day

As another Fire Prevention week draws to a close, the Campbell River Fire Department will host a fun and hands-on open house

Can you pull a fire hose? Climb those tall ladders? Want to get up close to the fire truck or have your photo taken with a Campbell River fire fighter?

As another Fire Prevention week draws to a close, the Campbell River Fire Department will host a fun and hands-on open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 at No. 1 Fire Hall, corner of 13th Avenue and Dogwood Street.

“The open house will take place rain or shine, and everyone’s invited to come meet the firefighters, try out some of the challenges, watch the demonstrations and enjoy the barbecue fundraiser,” says acting Fire Chief Ian Baikie. “We’ll also be reminding everyone to check smoke alarms.”

The barbecue fundraiser will support Cameryn’s Cause, which assists families who must travel outside Campbell River for medical treatment for a child’s health emergency. The Fire Department thanks Quality Foods who will provide hamburgers and hot dogs and pop, and Associated Tire who will provide the barbecue trailer.
