Fire Prevention Week is October 9-15, 2011
"Protect Your Family From Fire" is the NFPA’s official theme for Fire Prevention Week this year. This year's campaign is designed to educate people about the importance of smoke alarms and encourages everyone to take the steps necessary to update and maintain their home smoke alarm protection.
Our Fire Prevention Open house is scheduled for Tuesday October 11th at 7:00 PM at our main station located at 5770 Route 202 next to Peddlers Village. During Fire Prevention Week, we will be visiting with local area schools and day care centers. We will post the schedule as soon as it is finalized.
- Fire Prevention Night - Every year, during National Fire Prevention Week the Midway Volunteer Fire Company hosts our Annual Fire Prevention Open House. Throughout the night you can see our trucks, try on gear, practice Dialing 911, meet our firefighters, and watch various demonstrations.
- Classroom, school, and day care visits - Throughout the year, the Midway Volunteer Fire Company visits the schools and day centers in our coverage area. These visits primarily occur during Fire Prevention week each October. However, we are more than glad to schedule visits at anytime throughout the year for groups of any size.
- Fire House Tours -We are often contacted by local organizations for both children and or adults, to provide tours of our fire stations. During these tours you get to see the fire trucks, all the tools on the truck, and try on a Firefighters gear as well as learn about the fire company and fire safety. To arrange for a tour send an e-mail to email@example.com
