OPEN HOUSE PLANNED
DURING FIRE PREVENTION WEEK
October 5, 2012 – Fire Prevention Week in Midland is October 7 – 13. To help emphasize fire safety, the Midland Fire Department will hold its annual Fire Prevention Open House on Saturday, October 13,
from 1-4 p.m. at Fire Station One,
located at 816
E. Haley Street.
During the open house, young and old alike can enjoy
refreshments, tour the fire station and view its equipment, learn how to plan for
and practice fire escape, and view fire safety exhibits. A drawing for a children’s bicycle is planned
for the event.
Also during Fire
Prevention Week, the Midland Fire
Department will join forces with the nonprofit National Fire
Protection Association to focus on this year’s theme, “Have 2 Ways Out!" During this year’s campaign, firefighters and
safety advocates will be reminding residents of how important it is to have a
home fire escape plan that prepares families to think fast and get out quickly
when the smoke alarm sounds.
For questions or further information about the open house or
the department’s fire safety initiatives, contact Fire
Station One at 989-837-3410,
