In conjunction with Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 3-9), local fire safety specialist Wayne Riches stopped by St. Michael’s School on Tuesday to talk to students. This year’s theme is “Smoke Alarms—A Sound You Can Live With!” and Riches asked the children to get their parents to make sure their home has working smoke alarms. Firefighters will be at Canadian Tire tomorrow from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., where there will be displays, giveaways, and draws for prizes.
