FIRE HALL OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY OCTOBER 13th
OCTOBER 9, 2018 (IQALUIT, NUNAVUT) – As part of Fire Prevention Week, the City is pleased to announce that the Emergency Services Department will be holding an open house Saturday, October 13th, from 4 PM to 7 PM, at the Fire Station located by City Hall. Residents are invited to tour the Fire Hall, examine a fire truck up close, see a demonstration of a “live burn” where a living room will be set on fire, and enjoy a barbeque and refreshments.
This year’s theme for Fire Prevention Week is “Look. Listen. Learn. Be Aware. Fire can happen anywhere“. The City’s Emergency Services Department urges all residents to stay safe by following these important steps: 1) Look – for places that fire can start; 2) Listen – for the sound of the smoke alarm; and 3) Learn – two ways out of every room.
