Live fire safety display - Fire Chief asks for help|
| || ||
Toronto Fire Chief Bill Stewart will host a news conference this afternoon to
ask the media to help get a holiday fire safety message out.
Chief Stewart will demonstrate how fast a Christmas tree will go up in flames
if people don't play it safe this holiday season. He will also remind everyone
that space heaters need space, that they should never leave candles unattended,
and should only smoke outside.
Date: Wednesday, December 24, 2003
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Location: Fire Station 332, 260 Adelaide St. W. (north side between
Duncan and John Streets)
"The holidays are a wonderful time for family, friends, sharing and caring.
Unfortunately, it is also a time when many tragic and avoidable accidents
occur," Chief Stewart said.
