Next Week is Fire Prevention Week

NORFOLK - October 6th through the 12th is National Fire Prevention Week, and the Norfolk Fire Division is offering tours of the fire stations to kick off the celebration. City Fire Marshal Terry Zwiebel says open houses will be held from 1 until 3 Sunday afternoon at the main station at 7th Street and Koenigstein and Station Two on West Benjamin Avenue. He says it is possible that firefighters will have a brand new fire truck to show off by Sunday. Zwiebel says refreshments will be served, and, weather permitting, snorkel rides will be available. Zwiebel encourages families to plan and practice a home evacuation plan this week. He says schools are required to hold 10 fire drills a year – and we spend far more time in our homes than in school buildings.
