Anyone stopping by Sutton Fire Hall at Georgina Fire Department in Ontario on a recent weekend would have been hard pressed not to find some activity that interested them. The department’s Fire Prevention Week open house featured a pancake breakfast, barbecue, live burn demonstration, fire extinguisher training paired with different community partners, obstacle course, bouncy castle and more. All residents were encouraged to attend, learn about this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!™ and meet Sparky the Fire Dog®

The Teaching FPW page on the NFPA website includes free activity sheets for the kids, Sparky videos and a library of safety tips sheets to enhance your community event.
