Re-opening of Toronto Fire Station 424 on Runnymede Road
City of Toronto Fire Services invites members of the media to join Councillor Sarah Doucette (Ward 13 Parkdale-High Park), Interim Fire Chief Matthew Pegg and guests tomorrow for the official re-opening of Fire Station 424.

Date: Wednesday, October 12
Time: 5:30 to 8 p.m., with ribbon-cutting at 6 p.m.
Location: Fire Station 424, 462 Runnymede Rd.

The renovated station will provide a new office site for the Public Education Division and include a captain and six fire and life safety public educators. Station 424 will serve the West Command and can accommodate operations crews if required.

October 9 to 15 is Fire Prevention Week, so in addition to the excitement of the re-opening festivities, Station 424 will be opening doors to the public for information and activities to promote this year's theme, "Don't wait – check the date! Replace smoke alarms every 10 years."

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can visit, call 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or follow us @TorontoComms.
