During Fire Prevention Week from Oct. 6-12, the Fort Drum Fire Department will spread the word that more fires start in the kitchen than in any other part of the home – and how to keep cooking fires from starting in the first place.
The Fort Drum Fire Department will celebrate this week with multiple activities for the community. At the Main Exchange, firefighters will have a static display set up from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Firefighters are excited to offer additional static displays this year at the following dates and times:
wClark Hall, from 10 a.m. to noon Oct. 7; and
wMcEwen Library, Bldg. 4300, from 1 to 3 p.m. Oct. 11.
All of the static displays will have Fire Prevention Week promotional items for personnel to hand out as well as other fire safety information and trinkets.
A special guest will be at McEwen Library for story hour from 10 to 11 a.m. Oct. 11.
Due to the huge success of previous years, the Fort Drum Fire Department once again will team up with Mountain Community Homes to have an open house at Fire Station 2.
There will be displays, handouts, demonstrations, fire trucks, Big Al, refreshments and more! Come join us for an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 9 at Fire Station 2.
On average, seven people die in U.S. home fires per day. Cooking is the leading cause home fires and home fire injuries, followed heating equipment.
Firefighters invite the Fort Drum community to visit one of the displays or the open house and get information to share with your family. Join the fight and assist the Fort Drum Fire Department with fire prevention throughout the whole year.
