Fort Frances Fire Chief/CEMC Tyler Moffitt, left, and John Pierce of the Fort Frances Times promoted the #PrepareYourSelfie campaign in conjunction with Emergency Preparedness Week (May 8-13). The public is urged to make a 72-hour survival kit, take a “selfie” and post it to social media, and show how you’re prepared for an emergency. Use the hash tag #PrepareYourSelfie and challenge friends and family to do the same. The Fort Frances Fire & Rescue Service will have a spring open house on Saturday, May 27 from 8 am.-noon at the fire hall, where they’ll be promoting having an emergency plan and a family emergency survival kit.
