Canada gets in gear for Fire Prevention Week


By Lisa Braxton

The Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council Distribution Center, in Brockville, Ontario, is busier than ever these days with Fire Prevention Week less than six weeks away.

FPW materials have been received and work is underway assembling kits. Summer student Tobin Wade (pictured above) has been organizing packages of brochures, as well as stickers, banners, posters, and other items for distribution to fire departments across Canada.

A new offering for the 2015 FPW campaign is the Fire Safety Sports Box, filled with all kinds of items that kids and teens love–bracelets, water bottles, temporary tattoos, and fire safety brochures.
