Fire Prevention Week in Nelson starts on Friday in the downtown.

Fire Prevention Week kicks off today in Nelson’s downtown

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?

Want to see Nelson from 85 feet 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 firefighters at the Fire Prevention Week kickoff, at the corner of Josephine and Baker today. They’ll be there from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., with quizzes, offering advice, and showing the ins and outs of their trucks and equipment. They might even let you go up in 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 firefighters.

If you can’t make it to the event, check out Nelson Fire Rescue’s Fire Prevention Week webpage on the city’s website (nelson.ca). If you don’t have access to the Internet, call the fire hall’s non-emergency line at 250-352-3103.
