SHERIDAN — Sunday marked the beginning of national Fire Prevention Week. This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Every second counts — plan two ways out,” focuses on having escape plans in place in case of a fire.
During Fire Prevention Week, Sheridan Fire-Rescue will provide tours of the fire station for area preschools and elementary schools.
The students visiting the fire station will have the opportunity to see the fire vehicles, ambulances, equipment, protective gear and where the firefighters live while they are working their 24-hour shifts.
Then on Saturday, Sheridan Fire-Rescue will host an open house for the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be tours of the fire station, a junior firefighter challenge course, smoke detector and fire safety information and rides in a fire engine.
All members of the community are welcome to stop by and visit the local fire station and firefighters.
Sheridan Fire-Rescue is located at 151 S. Scott St.
