News Release
Home Fire Safety Delivered to Albany and Tangent Homes - 09/14/21

National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Fire Prevention Week is the first week of October.  This year’s theme is Learning the Sounds of Fire Safety and focuses on smoke alarm education.  Our goal is to help Albany understand the difference between a “chirp” and a “ beep”.  

Albany Fire Department shares smoke alarm education year round with our community, but Fire Prevention Week gives us a national campaign to further this safety message during our annual Open House.  For COVID safety reasons, the event was postponed to 2022.  We can still celebrate and educate.  AFD and Tangent Fire Department are creating home fire safety prevention bags for families who sign up online.  Prevention bags will then be hand delivered during prevention week.  We have capped the event to 500 children.
