Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week, officially sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), is an annual event held across the nation to keep the public informed about the importance of fire prevention. 

Along with the national campaign, local grade schools visit the Stoddard-Bergen Fire Department the entire month of October to promote and educate children on fire safety. During this month firefighters educate local grade school students on lessons such as:

  • Smoke Detectors
  • Crawl Low Under Smoke
  • Feel Door For Heat
  • Stop, Drop, and Roll
  • Escape Plans
  • Dial 911 in an Emergency
  • Firefighters are their Friends
