Langley City Fire Rescue members had a freebie for shoppers Friday.

At the cash registers of the Langley City Save-On-Foods, customers were helped by firefighters who used the interaction as a chance to pass along potentially life-saving information for Fire Prevention Week which is Oct. 9 to 15.

Pamphlets they were distributing help people plan escape routes from their homes. As an added bonus, they helped customers bag their groceries.

After their afternoon at the Save-On, they have three other opportunities to chat with the public:

• Langley Fraser Crossing Safeway: 20871 Fraser Hwy. on Friday, Oct. 7, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

• Willowbrook Safeway: 6153 200th St. on Saturday, Oct. 8, from 2 to 3 p.m.

• No Frills: 5501 204th St. on Sunday, Oct. 9, from 2 to 3:00 p.m.
