With cooler fall weather and many people turning to wood heat for warmth, the Campbell River Fire Department has teamed up with Guardian Services to provide a free information session on wood burning appliances and the benefits of new technology and more efficient stoves.
The session runs Thursday, Oct. 10 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the No 1 Fire Hall, downtown at 675-13th Ave.
A demonstration by wood energy technician Zigi Gadomski will show how new stoves provide a clean and efficient burn compared to older technology.
The first 10 people will be eligible for a free WETT inspection of their wood burning appliance from the Wood Energy Technicians of B.C.
Also, participants can bring in a sample of their firewood for a free moisture check to ensure their wood is dry enough for an efficient burn.
To register for the free event, people should contact Mike at Guardian Services 250-286-0986.
