Biggersville Fire & Rescue is recognizing Fire Prevention Week by sharing important safety information with children, teachers and families.
Firefighters urge everyone to check the batteries in all smoke detectors; service all heaters and HVAC units for the winter; clearly display house numbers with reflective numbers; and practice fire evacuation plans and make sure there are “two ways out” in case one is blocked by fire.
Children can get their picture taken with AXE the Fire Dog and get a free sticker on Friday night in the east endzone at the Biggersville Lions home football game.
The department also has a fire truck parked at the entrance to the Biggersville school with a fire prevention banner.
Biggersville firefighters also distributed fire safety leaflets to parents on Thursday morning as children were dropped off at school.
On Wednesday, Biggersville Fire & Rescue Chief Jonathan Rider presented Biggersville students and Principal Elizabeth White with fire safety posters.
The fire department says the efforts will make the community a safer place and are examples of “Our Family Protecting Yours.”
