Grey County EMS, OPP, the Canadian Coast Guard, and Canadian Armed Forces will also be joining in on the fun.

The open house is a great day to come and meet our firefighter family, see what we’re all about, have fun, and get some great safety information.” said Fire Chief John deHooge.

A BBQ lunch will be served, with donations being accepted towards the purchase of an ATV for remote rescues.
