Agassiz Firehall opens doors

Kids can climb in fire trucks at annual event

The Agassiz Firehall is celebrating Fire Prevention Week by holding its annual open house this Saturday, October 15.

The open house runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the District of Kent Firehall and Emergency Operations Centre, on Industrial Drive.

In addition to the usual cake and activities planned for the community, the fire department has partnered with the Agassiz Domino’s Pizza for a special promotion.

For a few hours on Saturday, firefighters will be delivering pizzas to homes in the Agassiz area. A few lucky residents will be visited by the firefighters throughout the open house. If their smoke detector is working, their pizza will be free. If it’s not working, they’ll get a new one, and the firefighters will offer to install it.

For more information about the firehall or joining the paid on-call team of firefighters, visit them online at www.agassizfire.com.
