The theme for National Fire Prevention Week is “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years.” Designed to provide information about smoke alarm safety, the educational campaign encourages citizens to check the age of all home smoke alarms and replace them every 10 years. The manufacture date is found on the back of each alarm.
Open House visitors will be treated to Fire Hall and fire truck tours, fire safety and wild land fire safety education, free car seat checkpoint, firefighting demonstrations, kids fire safety obstacle course and fire extinguisher training. The UT Lifestar helicopter will be on site for tours. The Tennessee Highway Patrol will have Rollover Simulator demonstrations and the Gatlinburg Police Department will have cruiser tours and K-9 demonstrations. And there will be food of course!
