Fire Department Educates Community

Posted: Updated:

SMYRNA, Tenn.- Sunday marks the end of "Fire Prevention Week."

Crowds gathered Sunday as the Smyrna Fire Department opened the doors of its Fire Station #1 to the community and offered some educational advice on what to do in case of a fire.

For example every family needs to have a fire plan which includes a meeting place outside of your home. Also it's important to practice that fire plan.

"Let them know any other safety things about how to get low, crawl," explained Lt. James Lawrence with the Smyrna Fire Department. "Have two ways out. This year's theme is actually, ‘Have two ways out!' We talked away how to have a drawing. Have a meeting place once you go outside. What number to call; not to play with 911, but also how to use 911."
