It’s Fire Prevention Week—help us sound the alarm that working smoke alarms save lives. Did you know that many people don’t test their smoke alarms as often as they should? When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. You need working smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Test yours every month! National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) will use the week of October 5-11, 2014 to educate the public of the importance of checking smoke alarms.
Barnwell City Fire Department and Barnwell County 4-H offer a 4-H Poster and Essay contest to promote Fire Safety Prevention. Using the National Fire Prevention Theme, the contest is open to students in Barnwell School District #45 grades K5-12. Posters and essays are submitted for judging with the winning entries on display during Fire Safety Fun Day held on the Saturday of National Fire Prevention Week.
