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.

To find out more about Fire Prevention Week programs and activities in Summit County, please see www.ldfr.org and www.rwbfire.org. To learn more about “Have Two Ways Out!” visit the National Fire Protection Agency website at www.firepreventionweek.org.
