The Lesser Slave Regional Fire Service’s annual open house is right around the corner on October 9th. We spoke with deputy fire chief Alex Pavcek to get all the details about what’s happening at this year’s event.
“The open house will be at the new fire hall with the new training center that has been moved over here from the old training site off Highway 88,” he says. “Visitors will be able to check out the fire hall, as well as the training center. I guess the best way to explain it, is to come down on October 9th and see what we do!”
Can guests expect to see anything new?
“As for new equipment we are always working on adding new training areas and equipment in the fire hall is always being looked at to make sure we are prepared for the next call, whatever that might be.”
The Leader attended the 2016 open house where there was various search and rescue demonstrations, fire extinguisher lessons, RCMP officers amongst other family-friendly activities. For those who don’t know, the new fire hall is located at 901 Caribou Trail NW by the Big Fish Bay entrance.
A demonstration at the 2016 open house. The 2017 version promises more of the same and maybe some new stuff – all in one location for the first time, thanks to the live fire training centre and fire hall being on the same property as of earlier this year.
