#FirePreventionWeek2021 kicks off on social media
Departments across the country are using this year’s theme, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety,” to engage with their community
By Rachel Engel
Fire Prevention Week 2021 is here, and firefighters across the country are looking to engage with community members on how to keep their families safe.
This year's theme, "Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety," focuses on educating children and adults about the technology involved in keeping them safe, and what sounds to pay attention to in the event of an emergency. Fire leaders can find resources for reaching community members on the Fire Prevention Week website.
From online story time to school visits and social media tips, see how fire departments are disseminating fire prevention knowledge in the communities they serve.
Fire Prevention Week begins today. Please join us for Story Time with the Chief. https://t.co/dFOi49kiFy#slcfire #firepreventionweek2021 pic.twitter.com/cnZtP4kTfV— Salt Lake City Fire Department (@slcfire) October 4, 2021
1/3 @HSVFire Station 5, Shift 3 enjoyed a great visit yesterday to the Second Mile Preschool in North Huntsville. The children toured the fire truck and were given a demonstration of what a firefighter looks and sounds like while wearing their turnout gear and SCBA. pic.twitter.com/khA6kIPdHu— Huntsville Fire & Rescue (@HSVFire) October 2, 2021
