The 100 Mile House Safety committee is putting on a very special event this coming Thursday (May 25).
Several organizations and emergency first responders will all make themselves available for residents to bring them their questions or concerns during Community Safety Awareness Day.
District of 100 Mile House Councilor, Donna Barnett, said its very important for people to come out and spend 20 minutes, a half hour, to better understand what roles these men and women perform to keep residents and the entire community safe.
“I would encourage people to come out and see what our Emergency Services do and provide for them. A lot of them are volunteer organizations and the important role that they play in your safety and how important it is for you to know what they need you to do to help them.”
Barnett added that the Safety Council brought all these Emergency Services and other organizations together so the public can come and ask any questions or share concerns about community safety awareness and preparedness this Thursday from 4 until 7 at the Community Hall.
“It’s very important that you come out, spend 20 minutes, a half hour, and ask questions. If you don’t understand what you’re suppose to do for your safety of your every day life come and ask questions. These people are here to help you”.
Community Partners takin part in Community Safety Awareness Day include:
100 Mile Fire Rescue, RCMP, BC Paramedics, BC Wildfire, Canadian Mental Health Association, and members of the Cariboo Regional District and the District of 100 Mile House.
