Find out more about fire prevention and protection when the Moose Creek fire station hosts an open house November 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Chief Dan Gauvin and firefighters will greet members of the public and serve hot dogs for lunch.
“This free public event is aimed at raising public awareness and fire prevention to meet local firefighters, check out their trucks and equipment, and ask questions about smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, home escape plans, and any other fire-related concern,” says North Stormont Mayor Dennis Fife.
Chief Gauvin observes, “Open houses give families and busi- nesses the chance to meet their local firefighters and tour the station that serves their homes and properties.”
At 11:30 a.m., mascot Sparky will be helping Chief Gauvin, Senior Captain Forgues and Fire Prevention Officer Gauthier will introduce the new Junior Firefighter program for 14-16 years of age and 16-18 years old and the first Junior Fire Safety Ambassador.

Raffles will be held at the end of the day.
