New Westminster fire department open house Saturday
The men and women at New Westminster Fire & Rescue are always working hard to protect the community of New Westminster, and are currently busy preparing for the annual Open House on Saturday, Oct. 5. The event is at the Glenbrook Fire Hall (McBride Boulevard and Sixth Avenue) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
I would like to cordially invite you to join us at our event, our kickoff to Fire Prevention Week, 2013.
From Oct. 6-12, we’ll be spreading the word that more fires start in the kitchen than in any other part of the home—and we’ll help teach people how to keep cooking fires from starting in the first place.
Our fire-rescue staff currently provide services which range from fire fighting and rescue, to medical help, to extricating victims from car accidents to rescuing a cat from a tree just recently. As well, we perform regular inspections of businesses and multi-family residences, and conduct fire investigations and more importantly – provide educational sessions to groups in the community.
The goal of Fire Prevention Week is to protect all families, especially those at the highest risk. At our open house we will provide resources for reaching those at highest risk to fire deaths and injuries.
We are looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!
