The first Saturday in the month of October, is the start of Fire Prevention Week.
“Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” is the theme for 2018 Fire Prevention Week.

For the last five years the Fort Thomas Fire Department has teamed up with the Highlands High School Film and Broadcasting Department to create a Public Service Announcement for Fire Prevention Week. The only requirement is that they must incorporate the theme of the current year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign.
Mr. Bill Poff, the head of the film department, assigns a group of students to the task. The students will present several ideas to the fire department and we pick which one best conveys the message to the public.
This year the group consisted of Jessica An, Katie Hall, and Melanie Parsons. The concept they created was perfect. You can view the video below:
So, just like in the video, you and your children can be detectives and investigate fire safety around the house. Go to firepreventionweek.org for more information and fire safety sheets that can be downloaded.
