Fire Prevention Week

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION Colo.(KKCO)-- The Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) for this year’s fire prevention week.

This year’s theme is “ not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practice your escape”. The focus will be on home fires and how to get away safe.

The NFPA statistics show that in 2017 U.S. fire departments responded to 357,000 home structure fires. The fire department urges the community to come out and learn about fire prevention.

Their open house is on October 10th between 4pm and 6pm.

The location is at Fire Station number one at 625 Ute Avenue.
