Over 1,500 visitors accepted the invitation extended by the Saint-Lazare firefighters on Saturday, October 14, 2017, and made their way to the fire station to enjoy the Open House festivities.
The line-up featured activities aimed at informing and educating the public including a visit of the facilities and fire vehicles, the fire prevention kiosk, the water spray simulation zone (forest fire) and the opportunity to dress up in fire-fighting gear to pose for a picture, which was enjoyed by both young and old. A surprise visit by Chase from Paw Patrol combined with the presence of the Sûreté cavalry and their horses, Sparky® the mascot and face painting made the event an absolute hit with the kids. First responders also wowed visitors with vehicle extrication simulations. Volunteers from the Unité communautaire des services d’urgence (UCMU) helped refuel participants by offering juice and hot dogs.
Thanks to the personnel from the Service de la sécurité publique et de la sécurité incendie, and the collaboration of its many partners, the event was a resounding success.
