The Black Rock Volunteer Fire Company (BRVFC) is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®)—the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years—to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” The campaign works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.
While NFPA and BRVFC are focusing on home fires, these messages apply to virtually any location.
The BRVFC in concert with the Upper Providence Township (UPT) Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) is visiting Day Care Centers and Elementary Schools throughout the week in support of this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”. Their activities will culminate with a free event on Saturday, October 12th . This free annual event “Oaks Public Safety Day” will be held at Lowe’s of Oaks between 12PM and 3PM and will have fire and police equipment displays, emergency service demonstrations, and public safety presentations.
