Fire Pump Demo - Saturday, June 22
Did you know that there are 18 fire pumps located at accessible water access points all over our waterways? They are available for all cottagers and residents in the area to use, in case of a fire emergency.
But would you know where to find and operate them if there was a fire emergency?
Returning by popular demand, the Georgian Bay and Severn Township Fire Departments will be coming out to demonstrate the correct way to use the fire pump. They will even assist you if you want to try it too!
Gord and Shanta Holditch, of Gloucester Pool Resort Marina are hosting this years demo on Saturday, June 22 at 10:30 to NOON. Located at the Narrows between Little Lake and Gloucester Pool. Come by boat or by road at 3720 Narrows Road. Updated Fire Pump Location maps will be provided.
