Oct. 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Today,
Barrie Fire and Emergency Service (BFES) and Simcoe County Fire Departments launched Fire Prevention Week with a first-ever flash mob performance in the City Hall courtyard. More than 100 kids, parents, firefighters, city staff and enthusiastic onlookers participated in the event that also featured pyrotechnics, Barrie firefighters rappelling from the roof of City Hall and even a zip-lining Sparky the Fire Dog.
"I'm extremely proud of our team for the creativity they invested in this spectacular performance," said Barrie Fire Chief
John Lynn. "We set out to create a unique and entertaining event that would get people excited about fire safety, and we certainly achieved that today. I would like to thank TVOKids and our sponsors Kidde Canada for participating in today's event and helping make our vision a reality."
