Fire Prevention

Keep your family safe with a working smoke alarm in every bedroom.

Did you know that roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep?

Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. In fact, having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half!


When it comes to smoke alarms, it’s about “location, location, location”.

During Fire Prevention Week, we will be visiting with local area schools and day care centers.

  • 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 firepre@midwayvfc.com
