Prac­tise your es­cape!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

TheSher­brooke Fire Depart­ment will be busy this week, sen­si­tiz­ing the pop­u­la­tion about fire preven­tion. Mem­bers of the depart­ment will be vis­it­ing child Day Care cen­tres, fa­mil­iaris­ing the chil­dren with the work of fire­fight­ers. They will be ac­com­pa­nied by their new mas­cot, Yvon Larosé, who comes right out of the pages of a col­or­ing book that has been used for a few years to teach chil­dren about fire safety.

Fire in­spec­tors will also be at some of the big Sher­brooke re­tail out­lets such as Costco, Wal­mart, Home De­pot and the Cana­dian Tire stores in Fleu­ri­mont and at Plateau St. Joseph, to talk with the pub­lic.

This year’s fire preven­tion theme is “Have two ways out!” and peo­ple are be­ing en­cour­aged to take part in the “great es­cape” which will take place on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 10th, at 7:00 pm all over Quebec. The pub­lic is be­ing asked by the Depart­ment of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity to carry out a fire es­cape ex­er­cise with their fam­i­lies.
