Sunday, Oct. 7, to Saturday, Oct. 13 is Fire Prevention Week. The Sherbrooke Fire Department (SPCIS) is marking the event with several activities available to the public. This year, the focus will be on smoke alarms. Too many people are still forgetting to check the effectiveness of their smoke alarms, to change the battery, or even to replace the alarm itself when necessary. This negligence has been implicated in 70 per cent of fires in Sherbrooke in 2018. The SPCIS will present three video clips on the proper use of smoke alarms, which will be broadcast on the City of Sherbrooke’s social media and at the Maison du Cinéma. See full story in the Thursday, October 4 edition of The Record.
