MANHATTAN -- The focus of Kansas State University's Fire Prevention Week is to remind all that smoke alarms save lives, according to Randy Slover, K-State fire marshal. He says it is important to install and maintain smoke alarms.

Fire Prevention Week activities at K-State include fire-fighting apparatus demonstrations and free fire extinguisher training.

Activities will be Oct. 4-6 on the Manhattan campus and Oct. 7 at K-State Salina. In addition to the fire-fighting apparatus demonstrations and fire extinguisher training, participants can expect to see an antique fire engine and pick up fire education materials, free fire hats and door prizes.

Manhattan campus activities will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 4, south of Derby Dining Center, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5, and Wednesday, Oct. 6, on the Bosco Plaza. Activities will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 7, east of the College Center on the Salina campus.
