This year's Fire Prevention Week theme is Every Second Counts - Plan 2 Ways Out!. This is an important topic that reinforces the need for everyone to have a home escape plan.

Fire Prevention Week Events

From now until October 16th at 4:30pm the North Perth Fire Department and McDonalds Listowel are giving away a Happy Meal coupon to the first 300 children who show us that they have a home escape plan. Simply draw your family's home escape plan on the Happy Meals for Home Escape Plans template and show it to a member of the North Perth Fire Department to claim your free Happy Meal coupon. Templates can also be picked up at the Municipal Office, Listowel Fire Station, Listowel Library, Monkton Library and Atwood Library during their regular business hours. Completed home escape plans can be brought to the Listowel Fire Station Monday - Friday from 8:30 - 4:30 or to any other Fire Prevention Week event hosted by the North Perth Fire Department (see below for details).
