Open house kicks off Fire Prevention Week
In celebration of Fire Prevention Week, Chief Robert Perko and the University Heights Fire Department (3980 Silsby Road) invite community members of all ages to their station on Sunday, Oct. 6, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Activities will include fire safety talks, station tours, and food, as well as inflatables and a coloring contest for kids.
University Hospitals will provide health screenings and food, including Kosher options, while the American Red Cross will distribute fire detector batteries.
This year, national Fire Prevention Week runs Oct. 6-12, and this year’s theme is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape—Plan and Practice Your Escape.”
Fire safety tips will be featured on the city’s social media accounts throughout Fire Prevention Week.
Mike Cook is the communications and civic engagement coordinator for University Heights.
