Although Oct. 8-14 was the official Fire Prevention Week this year, many fire departments are using the whole month of October to emphasize fire safety through public education events. Derry Fire Department is holding an open house Saturday, Oct. 21, 10a.m. to 2p.m. and Londonderry Fire holds its open house on Saturday, Oct. 14. noon to 4p.m. Those are good times to stop in at your local fire station, meet the crew, and pick up some pointers on keeping safe.
