Fire Prevention Week 2019
On October 9 2019, FNESS was pleased to join the Province of BC and other provincial fire prevention organizations in the official announcement of Fire Prevention Week 2019. Esther Winder and Liz Wilson, FNESS Fire Services Department, travelled to Victoria to take part in the event. Fire Prevention Week 2019 is a time for schools, fire departments and communities to work together on fire safety initiatives. FNESS encourages everyone to plan and practice their family’s home escape plan and to test their home’s smoke alarms.
Youth can get involved by creating fire and burn prevention posters and videos for the annual FPW Contest. FNESS is promoting the contest and learning activities to schools in Indigenous communities throughout B.C.
