Technical Assistance for the Northern Villages
The Section regularly delivers technical assistance to northern village staff on civil security and fire prevention in their communities. As well, the annual fire chiefs’ meeting is organized in October. During Fire Prevention Week also in October, the Section supports local fire departments to implement the planned fire safety awareness campaign. Among the activities organized are annual fire safety inspections for residences, fire prevention tips broadcast on local FM radio airwaves, and visits to schools, childcare centres and youth centres to promote fire safety issues.
