Local firefighters have been interacting with the public throughout the evening. A barbecue supper is available for people to enjoy, with a silver collection being taken for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. People are placing their donations in a firefighter’s boot, which is a tradition for fire department fundraisers.

An obstacle course is set up in the fire hall, highlighted by young people using water from a fire hose to knock balls off of pylons.

People can also take a look at the fleet of fire trucks and other rescue equipment in the fire hall, and they can see the memorabilia on display in the front foyer of the building.

The open house is taking place in honour of Fire Prevention Week, which runs from Oct. 6-12.

Next week’s edition of the Mercury will have more on this story.
