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

If you would like a SAFE home inspection, call (712) 279-6377 for an appointment.
