LAKE DILLON FIRE, RED WHITE & BLUE FIRE
OBSERVE FIRE PREVENTION WEEK
Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue and Red, White and Blue Fire are observing national Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 7-13, by teaming up to urge residents to “Have Two Ways Out!” This year’s theme focuses on the importance of fire-escape planning and practice.
Firefighters and fire-prevention officials from both departments will be visiting every elementary-school classroom in Summit County for two weeks, starting today, to discuss fire safety, as well as hosting fire-station open houses in Breckenridge and Dillon.
Through these educational, family-oriented activities, residents can learn more about the importance of fire escape planning and practice, as well as the power of fire prevention.
The Red, White & Blue Fire open house will be from 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at the main fire station, 316 N. Main Street in Breckenridge. The Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue open house will be from 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Dillon station, 225 Lake Dillon Drive. Both events are free and open to the public and will feature food, activities, giveaways and a visit from Smokey Bear – fun for the whole family.
