BHBVFD Fund Raising Project

The Bow Horn Bay VFD has begun a fund-raising program. We now have the WASP Manufacturing Wildfire Sprinkler Protection Kits for sale, to raise funds toward the purchase of an inflatable Safety House.

Sprinkler protection, combined with a few FireSmart techniques to eliminate potential ignition sources, is a proven way of dramatically increasing the survivability of your home in a wildfire, at very little cost.
The sprinkler kits include two sprinklers, two brackets, and two hoses, and retail for $149.00. The sprinkler heads easily mount on the gutter of your home by placing them with a broom handle – no need for ladders.

To order a kit for yourself, fill out this order form, stop by the Bow Horn Bay fire hall on a Monday or Tuesday, or email infobhbfire@shaw.ca.

Flag Contest Winner!!

We are pleased to announce the winner of the flag contest from our Open House! 
Congratulations to Gabriella Proietti, pictured here with her younger sister Haylee and Chief Steve Anderosov, holding her winning flag design. Gabriella's design won out over more than 30 other designs that were submitted. The firefighters themselves voted on the winning design. It was a close contest - they were all really well done.
Gabriella's design will be made into a real flag, and she will have the honor of raising it at the firehall during Fire Prevention week.
Well done, Gabriella, and thank you to everyone that submitted an entry - good job! 
A big thanks also goes our to BHBFD Treasurer Simone Mynen, for all her hard work in organizing this event!
