Mid-State celebrates Fire Prevention Week with safety presentations
For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. To make sure you know how to use that time wisely, Mid-State Technical College is celebrating National Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 7–13, by offering a variety of fire and life safety presentations exploring the theme of “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.”
The presentations are open to the public and take place Oct. 9, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., in rooms L133 and L134 on the Wisconsin Rapids Campus. Topics include e-cigarette hazards and safety as well as general fire and home safety practices. Participants will also have a chance to tour Mid-State’s fire training equipment, apparatus and facilities following the presentations.
