On Wednesday September 13th, while walking after school, SMCHS (St-Michael Catholic High School) student Cameron Durie (pictured with Vice-Principal Anne Leach and members of the North Grenville Fire Department) took quick action to notify the North Grenville Fire Service when he saw/ smelled smoke and heard a smoke alarm sounding, in the downtown area. The North Grenville Fire Service would like to recognize Cameron's astute awareness, recognizing a potential emergency then having the resolve to notify the authorities of a potential fire. This incident was investigated and determined to be a false alarm however Fire Chief John Okum and Fire Prevention Officer Shannon Armitage would like to remind residents that working smoke alarms are the law and do save lives. When possible fire conditions are observed please call 9-1-1.
