Calgary Fire Department Burnin’ Down the House at SAIT!
Ever wanted to (safely) see what a 2,000-degree house fire looks like?
On Sept. 29, the Calgary Fire Department will be burning two fully furnished house-like structures on campus to convey a vital fire safety message to students.
The demonstration – the first of its kind to happen on a Canadian campus – will help shed light on fire safety for post-secondary students, said Calgary Fire Department public information officer Brian McAsey.
McAsey said he’s aware it takes a strong message to get coeds listening in this day and age.
“We’re not trying to scare people,” McAsey said. “But we are trying to make the world a little safer by showing you a bunch of precautions.”
