Fire crews visiting splash pads to spread the word about fire prevention

On a hot summer night why not cool down with a trip to the splash pad and a special visit from the Oakville Fire department?

Sparky’s Dog Days of Summer is a new fire prevention initiative that gives residents an opportunity to meet and talk to local firefighters at their neighbourhood park. Along with learning about fire safety and accident prevention, kids can check out the fire truck and take part in hands-on activities.

“It’s never too early to start teaching kids about fire safety and we’re excited to introduce this new summertime tradition as a fun way to engage the community and provide important information that could save someone’s life,” said Glenn Barwell, public education officer with the Oakville Fire department.

Domino’s Pizza will also be onsite, selling pizza slices for a $1 each with proceeds going to the United Way of Halton and Hamilton.
