It’s Time For Another Open House!
GVFD Open House – Saturday, May 13th
It’s time for another open house! Come join us at the Albert Reed Memorial Fire Hall, 730 Church Street, from 1-4pm, on May 13th.
Gabriola firefighters will be there to talk about ways to FireSmart your property before the warm, dry summer weather gets here. We will also have a wood chipper on site, so you can see how simple it is to use. Chipping is a great alternative to burning all those pesky branches that are cluttering up your yard. We have lots of FireSmart brochures, and are happy to discuss them with you.
Effective CPR save lives. Want to learn basic, compression-only CPR? Give us 30 minutes, and we will teach you, let you practice, and have a quick discussion about the automatic external defibrillators that are in more and more public areas. Heart & Stroke Foundation Instructors, Jethro and Dimitri will be hosting CPR instruction every 1/2 hour during the Open House.
Do you have fire extinguishers at home or work? Do you know how to use them safely? Stop by and learn how to use an extinguisher properly. Need an extinguisher? We have them for sale at a great price.
We’ll also have one of our trucks set up with hoses flowing water for the kids (of all ages) to check out and try.
Just want to stop by and meet some of Gabriola’s firefighters and first responders? You can do that too. We’ll show you around the trucks, and answer any questions you may have.
We hope to see you there!
