Summer Nights a bit hotter

Maple Ridge Fire Department no longer turning on fire hydrants during PR visits

The Maple Ridge Fire Department’s Hot Summer Nights will be even hotter, during the current dry spell.

To show they’re doing their part, firefighters won’t be opening an fire hydrant and showering the street to cool everyone off.

Instead, they’ll be talking about fire safety, all in the aid of water conservation as Maple Ridge starts Stage 3 water restrictions.

“It’s still fun. They can still climb on the truck,” and there will still be a barbecue, said assistant fire chief Mark Smitton.

“It’s the perception of it. So local government is setting an example.”

Hot Summer Nights runs every Thursday between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. The next location, on Thursday, July 23, is The Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints, at 11750 – 207th St.

The week after, July 30, Hot Summer Nights takes place at Albion elementary, on 240th Street, just north of Lougheed Highway.
