Mark Your Calendar: Safety Fest Is Oct. 14

Celebrate Fire Prevention Week at the Garland Fire Department’s annual Safety Fest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Fire Administration and Training Facility, 1500 State Highway 66.

Join in a day of free family activities, food trucks, safety education and fun! Kids can enjoy interactive activities including a firefighter obstacle course, bounce slide, face painting, clown shows and a car fire demonstration by Garland Fire.

Safety exhibits will include CPR and fire prevention demonstrations, free child ID kits, and appearances by the Garland Police Department and SWAT team. Children and adults alike will enjoy seeing fire engines, ambulances, police cars and a helicopter on-site!

Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 8-14. This year’s theme is “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” Each year, the National Fire Prevention Association uses Fire Prevention Week to address home safety and fire prevention topics that can help keep you and your family safe.
