October is Fire Prevention month and Sioux City Fire Rescue normally has open houses for the public to tour all of its fire stations; and also does school visits for fire prevention.
The pandemic has changed that this year.
Deputy Fire Marshall Ryan Collins says this Sunday Fire Rescue will host a virtual open house on the department’s Facebook page:
OC………as they come in. :13
This year’s theme centers on kitchen fires and prevention:
OC………..safety in the kitchen. ;16
Another change in Fire Prevention month affects elementary schools.
Collins says firefighters have visited the schools every year since 1970 during October:
OC………open houses. :20
Collins says that Sioux City Fire Rescue is still conducting free home fire safety inspections and providing two free smoke detectors for those homes that need them:
OC……….working smoke alarms. ;25
