During the first Quarter of 2018 Seguin Fire Services have responded to fifty-seven calls for ssistance. Fifty-one training exercises have been conducted throughout the municipality. These training exercises include weekly training at the fire halls. Specialty training exercises have also been carried out, these include:

Fire Prevention has worked with the Southwest Parry Sound Mutual Fire Aid on a public education initiative in the Parry Sound North Star which was run in the March 23, 2018 edition of the paper.
Fire Prevention has worked with the grade one through four students (Approximately 100 students) from Humphrey Public School on posters with the message of “Have Two Ways Out”. These posters are now proudly displayed in the fire halls for the fire fighters to enjoy.
The Seguin Fire Services has also been able to provide some residents in our municipality with smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. These families who have received these now have safer homes thanks to the support of our municipality and our partners.
Seguin Fire Services will continue to respond and train to assist our residents to the best of our abilities into the future. The spring is rapidly approaching which will see staff conducting the annual inspections of our commercial occupancies in Seguin.
Respectfully submitted: Patrick Shoebottom Fire Prevention Officer”
