The Oakville Fire Department kicked off Fire Prevention Week (FPW) activities on Saturday, September 30th at the fire department training campus. The community was invited to enjoy a barbecue, bucket truck and rescue demonstrations, fire safety games, smoke room simulator, antique fire trucks and the junior firefighter challenge.

Oakville is just the latest stop on Sparky the Fire Dog's FPW visits to Ontario. He shared with the public this year’s theme: Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!™

The Fire Prevention Week website offers a number of suggestions for promoting the campaign in your community, including tips for conducting an open house.

Fire Prevention Week in a Box Value Pack includes brochures, handouts, magnets, stickers, and the Fire Prevention Week banner-plenty of giveaways to help keep fire safety on the minds of community members long after your event concludes.
