 Fire Prevention Week
October 9 - 15, 2016
       
Do you know how old the smoke detectors in your home are? The National Fire Protection Association recommends that smoke alarms be replaced every 10 years. Because the public is generally unaware of this requirement, many homes have smoke alarms far past the expiration date, which puts you at risk.

That's why, "Don't Wait, Check the Date" is the theme of this year's Fire Prevention Week.  
 
On October 1st, The Kerrville Fire Department will hold a special demonstration to reinforce this years theme. Stop by the Home Depot Parking lot between 9:00am and 12:00pm to mingle with firefighters and learn more.

The BIG event is at 11:00am - when Fire Marshal Chris Lee will set a 10x10 structure full of furniture on fire right there in the parking lot! You won't want to miss this special demonstration!
