The Compass - - SPORTS -

The Car­bon­ear Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment has an­nounced its plans for Fire Pre­ven­tion Week, which takes place from Oct. 3-9.

This year’s theme is Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With.

Fire drills are sched­uled for Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate and Davis Ele­men­tary. At Davis, the depart­ment will spon­sor a poster con­test for stu­dents in Kinder­garten to Grade 5, with the win­ners go­ing to A& W Res­tau­rant in a fire truck with two fire­fight­ers. En­tries must be re­lated to the theme of Fire Pre­ven­tion Week.

The depart­ment will also pick a chief for a day. The win­ner will be brought to and from their home in a fire truck and re­ceive a free din­ner at McDon­ald’s, ac­com­pa­nied by two fire­fight­ers.

There will be an open house at the fire hall on Wed­nes­day, Oct. 5, with rides on the fire trucks, com­ple­men­tary hot dogs and loot bags, and a visit from Sparky the fire dog.

The week will con­clude with the an­nu­all fire­fighter’s ball on Satur­day, Oct. 9 at the Knights of Colum­bus, start­ing at 7 p.m.

The Car­bon­ear Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment is plan­ning a va­ri­ety of events and ac­tiv­i­ties as part of Fire Pre­ven­tion Week 2010, which runs from Oct. 3-9. Mayor Sam Slade re­cently gath­ered with some fire­fight­ers to dis­cuss the an­nual event.
