Fire Prevention Week is October 9th - 15th

The library recommends the Hibbing Fire Department's annual open house on Saturday, October 8th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.  This is a free event that features public safety booths and demonstrations, health and blood pressure screenings, equipment and rigs on displaly, fire extinguisher demos, kids games, AED lessons, lunch and much more.

Everyone in the family has a role to play in home fire safety.  Both adults and kids should be familiar with smoke alarms and home fire escape planning.  Attending the open house is a great way to get started on a safer future.

Remember to check the library for books on fire safety.  Currently available in the children's department:

Fire Safety by Lucia Raatma

A Kid's Guide to Staying Safe Around Fire by Maribeth Boelts

Smoke Alarms by Lucia Raatma.
