The High Point Fire Department will be front and center at the High Point Farmers Market on Saturday, Oct. 7, 9:00 am - noon, when firefighters will be present to recognize Fire Prevention Week. The event will feature a fire truck, the opportunity for kids to interact with firefighters and the chance to put out a pretend fire. Fire department staff will also hand out bags of fire prevention materials. Fire Prevention Week takes place annually in October, and this year's theme is "Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire prevention™." The initiative works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe when cooking.
The Farmers Market is located at 901 N. Main St, High Point, NC 27262.
