Fire Prevention Week all about safety

Fire Prevention Week is underway in Lyon County, which means firefighters like Fire Marshal Reason Bradford are pretty busy.

The early focus this week is getting into schools so kids know the do's and don'ts of fire safety.

During the KVOE Morning Show on Tuesday, Bradford said firefighters try to reach all grades through the week.

The theme this week is "Prevent Kitchen Fires." Bradford says many home fires start in the kitchen, and two-thirds of those happen because a stove is unattended.

On Saturday, the annual Fire Prevention Extravaganza will take place from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm at the Fairgrounds. There will be a grease fire demonstration, free hot dogs, giveaways and information about fire safety.

For information, call firefighters at 343-4230 or 340-6350.
