June is Recreation month and Toronto Fire Services is partnering with Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation to highlight fire dangers during the camping season.

Date: Thursday, June 15
Time: 9:30 to 11 a.m.

Our summer safety awareness will include scenarios about potential dangers on general tent safety around open flames, control of open pit fires and outdoor barbecuing, including the use of stove tops and deep frying.
