As Fire Prevention Week quickly approaches the Fort Thomas Fire Department reached out to the Highlands Film and Production class to see if they could create a PSA regarding the importance of testing your smoke alarms.
Chris Rust is a firefighter and paramedic for the Fort Thomas Fire Department and he approached the class to see if they would be interested in the project focusing on this year’s theme, “Working Smoke Alarms save lives: Check yours every month.”
