(El Centro Fire Department will be busy in October)….Hopefully, it will not be fighting fires.
Throughout the month firefighters will be wearing pink tee shirts. The reason is to participate in Breast Cancer Awareness month. October 6th through the 12th is Fire Prevention Week. The El Centro Department will be joining forces with the non-profit National Fire Protection Association to remind residents to Prevent Kitchen Fires. During this year’s fire safety campaign, fire departments will be spreading the word about the dangers of kitchen fires, most of which result from unattended cooking, and teaching local residents how to prevent kitchen fires from starting in the first place.
