Fire Prevention Week is just around the corner. Here is some of the fire department events planned.

    • Nicollet County Emergency Management (MN) is
      promoting the importance of home fire escape planning.

    • Spring Lake Park-Blaine-Mounds View Fire
      Department (MN) will be holding open houses at its 4 fire stations. The events
      will provide residents an opportunity to explore fire trucks, ride in the
      bucket of a ladder truck, experience spraying water from a fire hose and learn
      about fire safety.

    • Port Colborne, (ON) Fire and Emergency Services
      has experienced two recent fires resulting from stoves being left unattended.
      The 2013 Fire Prevention Week theme “Prevent Kitchen Fires” provides a great
      opportunity for the fire department to reach out to residents with important
      cooking safety information. The department will host a safety event that will
      include an inflatable safety house,   a
      rollover simulator, hotdogs and drinks, face painting and fire safety

    • The Anderson Elementary School (Trenton, MI) will
      host a walk-a-thon for students, an annual Fire Prevention Week event. Students
      will leave the school with the high school marching band playing for the
      students. When the students finish the walk, they will go to the gymnasium for
      a Fire Prevention Week program conducted by the Trenton Fire Department.

The Liberal (KS) City Commission met recently and proclaimed October 6-12 as Fire Prevention Week. Members of the Liberal Fire Department were on hand, including Sparky the Fire Dog ®.</li> </ul> What have you planned for Fire Prevention Week? Please let us know in the comments section below.
