Burgers, chiens chauds, et la Semaine de la prévention des incendies

By Lisa Braxton

The City of Elko Fire Department in Elko, Nevada, expects to draw a record crowd to the annual Fire Prevention Picnic this weekend. The fire department and its partners in education anticipate promoting fire prevention and household safety information to more than 2,000 residents and visitors at the main city park.

Fire Marshal Joshua Carson says a key element to making the picnic a success each year is the Fire Prevention Week material the department distributes, particularly Fire Prevention Week in a Box.

“It’s already pre-organized for us to use,” he says. “We do such a high volume for this event. It makes it easy to put it together. All of the children are getting the same content. It helps get the word out to our community.”

More than 20 safety booths and displays will be part of the day’s event. Firefighters are scheduled to perform a live fire response and extinguish a live fire burn prop.

Additional exhibits include a fire apparatus tour, children’s hose drag races, live fire extinguisher training, a home escape wall and fire sprinkler and fire alarm exhibits.

Elko is observing Fire Prevention Week a week before the campaign’s official start because of the potential for cold weather.
