The Sharon Fire Department held an open house last Wednesday, Oct. 10, to celebrate Fire Prevention Week.

There was plenty of pizza, plastic fire hats and goody bags were given to all the children and Sparky the Fire Dog was on hand to pose for pictures with the kids.

Fire Prevention Week ran from Oct. 7-13. This year's theme focused on home fire escape planning and having two ways out of every room in your home. In a fire, if the first way out is blocked, it's important to have another way out to get to safety. Even though FPW is now over, it is important to learn about fire safety all year round!

We would love to see photos from your FPW events, please send them our way!
