Hume wins fire drill competition

In the most recent round of Nelson Fire Rescue Services’ annual fire drill competition, the students of Hume Elementary proved to be top-notch.

While pretty much all the schools in Nelson scored high, Hume came out on top and took home the trophy and $300 cash, donated by the local insurance agents at KIS, BCAA, RHC, and Poulin’s.

Properly exiting a home or building during a fire is not as simple as it sounds. Here are some simple tips.

Plan it ahead of time and practice with your family.

Stay low if there’s smoke, have a meeting place to do roll call, ensure no one goes back inside, and call 911 from a cellphone or from a neighbour’s phone.

Also plan what to do if your path is blocked by fire.

Nelson Fire Rescue Services congratulates Hume’s students and thanks the local home insurance agents for their support.

Anyone who has questions about fire exit planning is encouraged to call the fire hall at 250-352-3103.
