Fire Life Safety Day May 7th 2016

Saturday May 7, was awesome for our Fire Safety Day at the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market. The weather obviously was fabulous and we were blessed with a very large crowd who spent time with firefighters from both Colfax, High Point, North Carolina Forestry Service, Guilford County EMS, Guilford County Sheriff’s Department in addition to the volunteers from Pink Cares Piedmont. Thanks to all who came out and visited with us for our display of fire trucks, fire safety trailer, ambulance, helicopter and dozer from the forestry service or enjoyed the visit with GCSD and his canine partner or just stopped and ate a hot dog and enjoyed time with others.

This event has been so well attended that we have made this a semiannual event and will be held again on October 1st. Have a safe and fun summer and we hope to see each of you again at the fall event.

Thanks to each of you for all of your support of each agency involved.

With Fire Prevention Week upon us, we are posting below a couple of links that the NFPA have recently published. Take the time to look at the information provided, it just may be helpful. One big change they are recommending is having smoke detectors in each bedroom.   Have a safe October.

Fire Prevention Week, October 4-10, promotes smoke alarms in every bedroom and on every floor of the home

This year’s theme is “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep: Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm!”


NFPA introduces new free fire safety app





Fire Education at Colfax Elementary

We had the chance to visit with, and talk a little about fire safety this morning with some wonderful students at Colfax Elementary School.  We talked with approximately 100 kids in the kindergarten age group.  We showed them the fire trucks, and also had a firefighter to dress in full gear to let the kids see how it looks. Great morning.
