Fire Prevention Month is underway. The North Grenville Fire Service (NGFS) is holding the official launch on Sunday at the Kemptville 73’s home game.

Fire Prevention Officer Shannon Armitage says staff and Sparky the Fire Dog will be on site at the North Grenville Municipal Centre at 1:00pm. There will be fire truck tours and giveaways.

The NGFS is also hosting an open house. The event is set for Tuesday night. It kicks off at 7:00pm and wraps up around 9:00pm. The public is invited to come meet Fire Chief John Okum and the volunteer firefighters.

Deputy Fire Chief Randy Urslak says firefighters will do a live automotive extrication demonstration at 8:00pm with the Jaws of Life. He says there will be lots of fire prevention activities for kids, along with tours.

Teams of firefighters are also heading out into the community that night to check people’s smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
