Adicionalmente, officials attended the annual Scarecrow Festival, using the FPW theme for the department’s display. As families came by to check out the display they were handed FPW stickers and brochures and reminded to check their smoke alarms and replace them if they are 10 years old or older. More than 500 families were reached.

“Thank you, NFPA, for the materials and motivation,” says Prevention Specialist, Nannette Tatom.
