April showers brought more than May flowers in Arkansas this month. Over 60 fire marshals from across Arkansas attended the second Fire Safety Summit hosted in Jacksonville, AR. With a high rate of fire deaths in this rural state, fire marshals gathered to talk about hot topics affecting fire prevention ahead of their annual Fire Marshal Association conference. National speakers from NFPA, Nationwide: Make Safe Happen, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission gave updates and new innovative ways to reach consumers about the dangers of fire, importance of smoke alarms and home fire sprinklers, wildfire and carbon monoxide. The focus of the summit was how we protect the work with our knowledge. A special thanks to Nationwide Insurance for sponsoring the event. Thanks to everyone that took time to attend this fire safety event to help save lives in Arkansas.
