It is a proactive method of reducing emergencies and the damage caused by them. Most importantly we want to keep our residents and our neighboring communities fire safe. Fire Prevention will take place this year from October 5 through Oct. 11. The national theme will be announced on June 1, follow NFPA.org & Sparky.Org to get up to date educational information on Fire Prevention.
