Albemarle County Firefighters And Sparky The Dog Want To Teach You How To Be A Fire Hero
2/17/2014

March 1st from 1:00 – 5:00 Located in the Pantops Shopping Center in front of Food Lion

Albemarle County Firefighters and Sparky the Fire Dog ® are working together to raise awareness and provide safety tips to our citizens. On March 1st, they will share valuable information and conduct exciting and informative demonstrations - all designed to keep you and your family safe.

Fire fighters will demonstrate the proper use of fire extinguishers and provide tips on home escape plans, first aid, and advice on outdoor burning. There will be a "smoke house" that’s designed to simulate fire emergencies and to help teach effective ways to escape your home during a fire.

At 4:00 pm, fire fighters will conduct a live fire demonstration showing how fast fire spreads and how fire sprinklers play an essential role in fire safety by containing and possibly extinguishing the fire.

If you have questions or concerns about your home safety practices, feel free to bring them along – Fire fighters and Sparky are eager to help.

For further information, please call Albemarle County Fire Rescue, 434-296-5833.
