Regional Emergency Services is hosting a community kickoff for Fire Prevention Week where residents can interact with local firefighters and get safety tips.
A interactive fire safety trailer is being set up, while various firefighting equipment and trucks will also be on display.
A free barbeque is also being offered with multiple family friendly activities.
The kickoff takes place on October 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at MacDonald Island Park with Fire Prevention Week taking place from October 6-12.
Meanwhile, RES is reminding residents to have a plan in place in the case a fire does start in their home.
This includes practicing a home fire drill twice a year, teaching kids how to escape on their own, making sure your address is clearly marked making it easy for the fire department to find you, and more.
