You may have noticed that some area firefighters are spending a little more time on education recently. The Mid-County Fire District has been doing fire prevention presentations for the past two weeks. Chief Scott Frandsen says they’re stretching fire prevention week and taking advantage of what is fire prevention month.
The Mid-County district will also go into all the daycares and senior centers as well, doing presentations most of the month. So what are they talking about? Fire Marshal Lianne Johnson says it’s mostly the basics, covering several safety tips.
Johnson says this year they’re also emphasizing that people should sleep with their bedroom doors closed to give them more time to escape through a window in the event of a fire.
