2021 Fire Prevention Week coming to K-State Oct. 3-9

Submitted by Jack Chatmon

This year's theme of Fire Prevention Week at Kansas State University is "Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety," an important message that emphasizes educating everyone about the different sounds smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. These are vital devices when it comes to providing early warning for building occupants in the event of a fire emergency.

Fire prevention events that K-State offers will occur on the Manhattan campus from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 4-7 at the following locations:

Oct. 4 — North of the Student Union on Bosco Plaza
Oct. 5 — Outside of main entrance at Wefald Hall
Oct. 6 — Derby Dining Center
Oct. 7 — Salina campus near College Center

Activities will include free fire extinguisher training, distribution of educational materials and free giveaways, including coloring books and firefighter hats for kids, coupons to Student Union food vendors, as well as firefighter apparatus displays and demonstrations.

The 2021 Fire Prevention Week at K-State is sponsored by K-State's Division of Public Safety in conjunction with the Manhattan Fire Department, Kansas Fire Marshal's Office and Kansas Forest Service.
