Operation EDITH, part of Fire Prevention Week, is October 9

October 6, 2017
Dysart Reporter

2017 Fire Prevention Week is October 8-14 this year with the theme of "Every Second Counts - Plan 2 Ways Out!" There will be many local activities for kids to take part in this annual tradition.

Operation EDITH (Emergency Drills in the Home) helps families plan escape routes, test smoke alarms, check fire extinguishers and make sure all family members have a plan for fire.

Once again this year, please turn your front porch light on when your family has performed all these things and firemen will tally the amount of lights on in town. The firemen will come around after 6:30 p.m. on Monday, October 9.
