For Immediate Release: Chief Jen Collins-Brown in conjunction with Dawson’s True Value Hardware invite the public to take part in a celebration of Fire Prevention Week which occurred as the Fair was winding down between October 7-13. The event will be downtown in the shopping center from 11 AM to 2 PM Saturday NOVEMBER 3 *Date edit due to weather*. Fire Prevention is an integral aspect of the modern fire service. It is the proactive proces by which fire departments use modern technology and life safety/fire prevention codes to prevent incidents from occurring as well as minimizing incidents, ideally confining them to their incipient phases. Since the implementation of Fire Prevention Education in schools, the number of child deaths as a result of fires in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have gone from over 30 to typically less than 5 almost every year. Fire related deaths as well as catastrophic fires are less frequent as well, as what would have become a kitchen or house fire years ago is now caught before it escapes the confines of the container being used to cook in. We look forward to seeing everyone there, and thank Dawson’s True Value for their extremely helpful partnership!
