This week is Fire Prevention Week. The Sooke Fire Hall is involved in a few events in town this week.
(From their blog-site)
On Thursday, Oct 13th from 3:30 to 8:00 pm, the fire department and emergency program will be hosting an open house. There will be displays on fire safety, emergency preparedness, tours of the station and apparatus, bounce houses, activities for kids of all ages and even refreshments. Please join us.
The next event will take place Friday and Saturday evening when firefighters team up with Andy’s 2 for 1 Pizza and Sooke Home Hardware to assist residents in ensuring their homes are fire safe. Crews will be following pizza delivery vehicles within the community to those homes placing orders. On arrival at the home, firefighters will ask the residents if they can check their smoke alarms. If they work properly, the homeowner will recieve a coupon for 50% off their next pizza order. If the smoke alarm does not work, the firefighters will install new batteries. If no smoke alarm is present, crews will then install a new one at no charge. You really can’t loose on this program.
