When you hear sirens on Wednesday night, don’t run and hide – practice your fire drill.

As part of the Fire and Burn Prevention Month, the Fort St. John Fire Department will be driving around the city with their sirens blaring.

When residents hear the sirens at around 6:30 p.m., they are asked to execute their Family Fire Evacuation Plan.

Captain Greg Nicoll with the Fort St. John Fire Department says most families have an evacuation plan in place.

He says families should execute their fire drills several times per year.
