This year, Fire Prevention Week will run from 8:00 a.m. local time on Sunday October 9 to 8:00 p.m. local time on October 15. Monday October 10th is the Canadian Thanksgiving Day.
For those not familiar with the use of the special call VE3FIRE, this call is put on the air during Fire Prevention Week across North America. It is part of a program where we partner with ten US Stations with call signs N0F through N9F and two Wild Card stations KF2IRE and VE3FIRE. Please go to www.hamfire.com for more information on the printable certificate award program.
I need your commitment prior to September 30th. Time slot preferences are on a first come, first served basis with a cut-off date of midnight on September 30th. If you apply after this date, you run the risk of obtaining any prime-time slots. I will not be bumping assigned slots to accommodate late comers.
Work with me and we will have a great event. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
