On Tuesday October 10, employees from Base headquarters participated in a fire drill that ended with the reading of the National Fire Prevention Week proclamation. Fire Prevention Week is an annual awareness campaign that reinforces the critical importance of fire safety within our communities. A big thank you to our Base Fire Services Team for coordinating this event, to Cdr Foley for reading the proclamation, and to all others in attendance (including Sparky the Fire Dog!).
