Fire Prevention Week’s 100 year anniversary ended last week, with the Okmulgee Fire Department visiting several area schools in hopes to educate the next generation on fire safety. Examples were given regarding what to do with doors and windows in the event of fire, how to be safe around portable heaters, and children were able to take a look inside firetrucks to see some of the equipment our firefighters use and see the gear our firemen wear. These modern-day heroes are known for their willingness to risk their lives to save others, through these outreach efforts our fire department may be training the next generation of firefighters.
