*Fire Safety Activities*


Oct. 4 - 10 is Fire Prevention Week! Find fire safety activities here!


Fire Prevention Week is October 4th through October 10 and October is Fire Safety Month! This year's theme is "Close before you doze.", stressing the importance of closing doors before you sleep to help protect you in case there is a fire. This year's program is a little different than the in-school programs of past years due to the COVID-19 pandemic and how the schools are operating on limited schedules. This year we are presenting an online program that has different activities and information for students and parents from kindergarten through middle school. Please click on the appropriate age group link below to get access to free information and activities that you can do at home.
