This week is National Fire Prevention week, and fire departments throughout Abington will host open houses at fire stations.This year’s National Fire Prevention Association Fire Prevention Week theme, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be Aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” focuses on three steps people can take to reduce the chances of a fire starting, and how to escape safely if a fire happens. The activities will include: firetrucks and live demonstrations, snacks, and safety tips from Abington Township Fire Departments (A.T.F.D.). Children will learn how to safely escape a smoke-filled space by doing so in the safety of A.T.F.D.’s smokehouse, a trailer that fills with cool and harmless “smoke.” Children and interested parents can also put out a small, contained fire using a fire extinguisher, an experience that’s a confidence booster if a real need should arise.
