In conjunction with Fire Prevention Week, Cartersville firefighters are set to open their doors to the public in Cartersville Fire Department's second-annual Fire Safety Open House.

Saturday, Oct. 9, from noon to 4 p.m. families will be treated to light refreshments, door prizes, including fire extinguishers, smoke detectors and flash lights, and free services at Fire Station 1 on the corner of Erwin and Church streets. In addition to demonstrations and puppet shows, participants can view the fire safety house, which is used to teach children and adults how to escape in the event of a fire.

In an effort to better educate communities throughout the U.S. about smoke alarm safety, the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association is promoting "Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With!" as the theme for this year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, Oct. 3-9. NFPA has been the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for 88 years, and the City of Cartersville Fire Department always seeks way to support the campaign locally.
