Open house at the North Shore Fire Department

Nelson, BC:  The North Shore Fire Department (NSFD) invites the public to attend an open house at the fire hall on Saturday, September 15, from 10:00am to 2:00pm. The fire hall is located at 2703 Greenwood Road, Nelson. The free event will include refreshments, activities and tours of the fire hall.

“We wanted to give members of the public a chance to tour the fire hall, meet the firefighters, and learn more about the equipment we use to help protect our neighbourhood—plus, it will be a lot of fun!” said Jay Marshall, NSFD Deputy Fire Chief. “Bring the whole family and drop by for a free hotdog and some activities for the kids, including the chance to get up close and explore the fire trucks.”

Everyone is invited to attend the open house. View the open house poster.

“We look forward to this opportunity to get to know the people on the North Shore even better,” continued Deputy Chief Marshall.
