On Thursday evenings in July and August, the Maple Ridge Fire Department visits various community neighbourhoods, both pre-announced and random locations, after 6:30 pm.
Most often the public sees fire crews when they are busy at an emergency scene; thus they are unapproachable. This program allows the public to see its Fire Department in a different light and interact with the firefighters.
People will be able to:
ask the crew questions; seek advice on summer safety and fire safety in general
check out the fire trucks and equipment
try some "hands-on" activities
have some fun
Inclement weather (pouring rain) or emergency calls may cause event to be cancelled/rescheduled.
