National Fire Prevention Week- Office of State Fire Marshal & Bend Fire Department Partner to Educate Local Cub Scout Pack 230
Bend, October 8, 2018- As part of Fire Prevention Week, the Bend Fire Department’s “West Side House” Fire Station 301, was filled by Cub Scouts from Bend’s Pack 230 to learn about their role in fire prevention and home fire safety. Fire prevention aligns directly with the Boy Scouts of America’s charge to be “Prepared. For Life”.
As part of the 2018 campaign, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reminds us to “Look. Listen. Learn. Be Aware. Fire can happen anywhere.” Look for places fire could start. Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. Learn two ways out of every room.
Deputy State Fire Marshal Kevin Sullivan stated, “The Office of State Fire Marshal champions these types of community partnerships. It was both an opportunity for scouts and parents to learn critical fire prevention information, and it was an opportunity to connect cub scouts and parents with the dedicated fire service professionals of the Bend Fire Department who serve their community every day.”
