Smoky River Fire and Rescue held Fire Prevention Week activities at the Falher fire hall on Oct. 15. They had their equipment on display and provided children with educational materials for fire prevention and awareness.
Two fire trucks were placed in front of the fire hall for viewing as well.
The fire chief’s office was turned into a “smoke room,” filled with smoke to highlight a thermal camera the fire department uses.
Fire Prevention Week was held across Canada during the week of Oct. 9-16. The theme of this year’s event was Hear the Beep When You Sleep, in reference to changing the batteries in your smoke alarm frequently.
