Coffee with a Firefighter Day – October 12th, 2018
“GO TO BLAZES“ is a 1956 vintage Fire Prevention 29 minute video directed by Thomas Farley through the National Film Board with cooperation from the York Township Fire Department. This short documentary from the Perspective television series examines the dangerous practices that can cause tragic and costly fires. The film follows Inspector Joe Fletcher as he investigates fires that have happened, or could happen. It shows how frequently fires are actually crimes of carelessness, which, if prevented, could have saved life and property.
