FPW already in the planning stages for fire department in North Carolina

title

Por Lisa Braxton

Since March, the Thomasville Fire Department has been preparing for its biggest fire safety event of the year, Safety Fest, which is held during Home in hosting this event. More than 20 area agencies are invited and hundreds of residents attend.

“The funeral home is right by our local library and between the funeral home and the library, it’s a great fit. It’s thinking outside the box,” says Thomasville Fire Department Division Chief Dolly Hulin. “The funeral home doesn’t book any funerals that afternoon. That gives us plenty of parking there and at the library.”

Hulin says the department’s resource for fire safety educational materials for Safety Fest is FPW in a Box. “It’s a one-stop-shopping kit. We have a volunteer who puts everything into goody bags and we’re ‘good to gofor Fire Prevention Week.” This year the funeral home will be serving hot dogs so that families can have a meal when they come to Safety Fest.

She said she and other officials in her department feel comfortable making the purchase of FPW items because they also have the resources of the number of free materials NFPA makes available for the fire service.
