Members of the Elk Valley Life Skills group visited the fire hall in Fernie recently as part of the program's field trip day.

The Columbia Basin Family Resource Society’s group helps clients get out and get involved in the community, and the trip to the fire hall was very popular. They met firefighters and learned a little about fire safety.
