During Fire Prevention Week, which continues through Saturday, 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 the 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. today and Friday.
Firefighters are excited to offer an additional static display from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday at McEwen Library, Bldg. 4300.
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.
In addition, a special guest will be at McEwen Library for story hour from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday.
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.
