KVFD Marks Fire Prevention week
October 20, 2022
Fire Prevention Week 2022 marked the 100th anniversary of the week, which began in 1922.
Each year from Oct. 9 to 15, Fire Prevention Week is observed to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, which started on Oct. 8, 1871.
Kimball Volunteer Fire Department visited and shared safety messages and materials with pre-schoolers and elementary students. The children were educated on the fire trucks, ways to prevent fire and "stop, drop, and roll."
KVFD concluded its day with a Fire Hall Open House on Oct. 12.
The public was invited to eat and "come see the fire hall and updated equipment."
