Fire Prevention Week is under way

After Sunday’s appearance by firefighters at Lowe’s to kick off Fire Prevention Week, students at several Hood County schools will have a chance to see local firefighters and their equipment and learn valuable fire safety awareness information during presentations starting Tuesday (Oct. 9). This year’s national theme, promoted by the National Fire Protection Association, is “Have 2 Ways Out,” emphasizing the importance of having multiple escape routes planned in advance in case of a fire.
