Mason residents invited to Fire Prevention Week Open Houses | News
MASON, OH (FOX19) - Mason residents looking to learn more about fire prevention are invited to open houses the week of October 7 - 13.
“Fire is unpredictable and moves faster than most people realize. Having a tried and true escape plan with two ways out is essential to ensuring your family’s safety should fire break out in your home,” says Mason Fire Chief John Moore.
City of Mason firefighters and paramedics invite you to learn about “Have Two Ways Out!” by visiting one of the Mason fire stations. Station 51 at 4420 Mason-Montgomery Road will have station tours, the fire safety smoke house, and information from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 7. The fire safety smoke house will be at Station 52, 5500 Cedar Village Drive, from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 13. Both stations will be open for tours and safety literature from 4 to 8 p.m., Monday – Friday, October 8 - 12.
The fire safety smoke house is a specially constructed trailer to teach children about what to do in case of a fire. A non-toxic “smoke” is used to help children know what to expect if they are ever in a building that is on fire. Children who visit the smoke house are instructed about looking for safe exits and staying low and under the smoke.
