Mark your calendars folks, the New Westminster Fire Department is hosting its annual open house on Saturday, Oct. 13, and everyone is invited.
The open house happens every October and showcases some of the behind-the-scenes work the local fire department does around the city.
Visitors can expect to see live firefighting demonstrations, meet Sparky the fire dog, check out some of the department’s equipment and enjoy a bite to eat at the New West Firefighters’ Charitable Society’s barbecue.
There will also be staff at the event talking about fire prevention and home safety, including smoke alarms and more.
The event is completely free and runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Glenbrook Fire Hall, 1 East Sixth Ave. Residents are encouraged to walk or take transit, but there will be parking available at the Canada Games Pool parking lot.
For more information, call 604-519-1000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
