Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned
Testing the water before putting a child in the bath may sound like common sense. Wearing short or close-fitting sleeves when cooking on the stovetop may show foresight. This and other simple actions may be all it takes to prevent devastating burns. Fire Prevention Week 2009 focuses on burn awareness and prevention, as well as keeping homes safe from the leading causes of home fires.

Fire Prevention Week will be held October 4th through October 10th, 2009. The North Warren VFD will be having an open house with fire truck rides the evening of October 7, 2009. Stop by our firehouse to see displays on fire safety and enjoy a ride in our fire engines.
