Fire Chief for a Day Danee Carr

Carr named Fire Chief for a day

Each October, fire departments across the country provide fire safety presentations and educational materials to children in Grades 1-3

Each October, fire departments across the country provide fire safety presentations and educational materials to children in Grades 1-3.

This year, the 2015 theme was “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep”, and focused on having functioning smoke detectors in the home. The Prince Rupert Fire Rescue Department conducted fire safety presentations to nearly 600 students, and with support from Pacific Northern Gas (PNG), handed out 25 free smoke detectors vouchers to students at schools across the city.

As part of Fire Prevention Week activities, one lucky Pineridge student, Danee Carr, was drawn as “Fire Chief for a Day”. His duties included visiting the Fire Station, touring the Safeway Bakery and bringing back a cake to share with his classmates, and having lunch with the firefighters at McDonald’s.

Fire Prevention Week provides an important message to our children about fire safety. The success of this week relies on the effort and contributions from all of our community members that participate along with the Fire Department. The Prince Rupert Fire Rescue Department would like to thank the students, teachers, families, and all of the community partners for their continued support of this important week.
