On a beautiful spring day, Ms. Petrocco’s Senior Kindergarten/Grade 1 Class from Thessalon Public School, paid a visit to Fire Station 1 in Little Rapids. They were given a tour of the fire hall, provided with valuable fire safety education, and experienced some hands-on equipment demonstrations. These class visits are part of the Fire Department’s Community Outreach and Education initiatives. Fire Department personnel pictured above are: Fire Chief Gib Medve, Captain Brent Withers and Fire Fighters Rudy Giasson, Randy Scheuermann, Janet Donig and Angela Bennett.

If your class or community group would like to arrange a visit to either the Little Rapids or Iron Bridge fire stations please contact Fire Prevention Officer Captain Henk VanDelft via the Municipal Office (705) 843-2033. In addition, the Fire Department co-sponsors “What’s Cooking?”–a Kitchen Fire Safety program for young people held at various times throughout the year (watch for flyers and announcements on this website). Public Open Houses are held each autumn during Fire Prevention Week.
