Nelson Fire Department kicks off Fire Prevention Week

Want to see Nelson from 85 ft up in the air? 

Want to learn how you could win a year of fire insurance or an iPod Touch? 

Think you know all there is to know about a simple smoke alarm?

Join the Nelson fire fighters at the Fire Prevention Week kickoff, at the corner of Josephine and Baker, Friday, (October 5). 

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., there will be with quizzes, offering advice, and showing the “ins-and-outs” of their trucks and equipment. 

There might even be the opportunity to walk the ladder truck for an amazing view from high above Nelson’s downtown.  

Grown-ups can learn how a working smoke alarm could earn a free pizza. 

Kids can learn how an effective Fire Escape Plan could net them dinner with the fire fighters.

If you cant make it to the event, check out Nelson Fire Rescue’s “Fire Prevention Week” webpage on the city’s website (www.nelson.ca) or call the fire hall’s non-emergency line at 352 3103.
