Public Invited to Fire Prevention Week Kick-Off At Rose Bowl Oct. 5

 PASADENA FIRE DEPT. KICKS-OFF “FIRE PREVENTION WEEK” 2013 WITH DEMONSTRATIONS AT THE ROSE BOWL  

PASADENA, Calif.—The Pasadena Fire Department invites the public to attend a special “kick-off” for Fire Prevention Week 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Saturday, October 5, 2013 at the Rose Bowl Stadium, near Gate A.  Free hot dogs and drinks will be available for the first 250 attendees. 

Fire personnel will meet and greet the public and educate the community about fire safety.  Other highlights will include the Fire Department Kids Safety Trailer (simulates a kitchen to teach cooking safety), a ladder truck, fire engines, rescue ambulances and fire extinguisher demonstrations and the Urban Search And Rescue vehicle.  There will also be educational giveaways free to the children.   

The 2013 Fire Prevention Week is October 6-12.  This year’s theme is “Prevent Kitchen Fires” to help spread the word that more fires start in the kitchen than in any other part of the home.  Every year since 1925, the President of the United States has signed a Proclamation to observe Fire Prevention Week with varying themes. 

For further information please contact the Fire Department at (626) 744-4675.
