PRO­TECT YOUR FAM­ILY FROM FIRE — Car­bon­ear Mayor Sam Slade (seated, cen­tre) joined mem­bers of the Car­bon­ear Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment last week to of­fi­cially pro­claim Oct. 9-15 as Fire Pre­ven­tion Week. Slade called upon cit­i­zens to par­tic­i­pate in fire pre­ven­tion ac­tiv­i­ties at home, work and school. On av­er­age, eight Cana­di­ans die from fire ev­ery week. Most of these fires are pre­ventable and caused by care­less be­hav­iour. For its part, the Car­bon­ear bri­gade will as­sist with school fire drills, stage a poster con­test, and one lucky youth will be named “Chief for a Day.” The bri­gade will host an open house Oct. 12 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. “ This year’s theme un­der­scores the im­por­tance of mak­ing Cana­di­ans aware of the sim­ple pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sures they can take to pre­vent dis­as­ter,” said Chief Ed­ward Ka­vanagh. “An ounce of pre­ven­tion will save lives, homes and every­thing that we hold dear.”
