LOOKING FOR AN INNOVATIVE SOLUTION FOR YOUR BATHTUB? SAVE THE TAX* ON A COMPLETE INSTALLATION

Barrie firefighters are teaming up with the Simcoe County Home Builders’ Association to build a house in six hours, and residents are being invited to watch the show for a “full day of free family fun.”
The 750-square-foot bungalow will be used for firefighter training by the Barrie Fire and Emergency Service, Innisfil Fire and Rescue Service and Georgian College’s pre-service firefighting program, as well as for public education and life-safety initiatives.
It’s all taking place at the new Barrie fire training location, 10 Saunders Road, on Saturday, June 11. Activities for the family include:
10 a.m.–2 p.m.: Meet Sparky, tour a fire truck, learn about fire safety, enjoy face painting, a trade show, music and more; 10 a.m.: builders versus firefighters skills challenge; 11 a.m.: tug of war competition; 11 a.m.–2 p.m.: free bbq lunch; noon: builders versus firefighters eating challenge; 1 p.m.: builders versus firefighters combat challenge.
The house is scheduled to be complete by 2 p.m., followed by the official ribbon cutting ceremony. This house will provide a much needed training resource within Barrie to ensure firefighters can maintain and develop their skills on a regular basis. The ability to train locally is the most effective option available to any fire service.
The house is expected to last for five years and will be used multiple times for fire training. The controlled fires inside the house will be contained, causing little to no damage to the structure of the house.
