SIX NATIONS, ON – Halloween and the night before Halloween which has commonly become known as “Devils Night “is historically a very busy time for Six Nations Firefighters due to the increase in mischievous arson activity within the community.

In an attempt to combat, deter and decrease the amount of incidents of fire within our community, this past Devils Night & Halloween Night, the Six Nations Fire & Emergency Services Department took a proactive role by actively patrolling the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.
