Boyer's, MC fire companies will host apparatus display
MOUNT CARMEL - A local grocery store and borough fire companies will host a fire and emergency apparatus Saturday in honor of National Fire Prevention Week, which ends that day.
The display will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Third street parking lot of Boyer's Food Market.
October is Fire Prevention Month. This year's theme, "Have 2 Ways Out," focuses on the importance of identifying and practicing a fire escape plan. A home can be fully engulfed in flames and smoke within a matter of minutes, blocking stairways and doors.
Once outside, families should go to a pre-designated meeting place.
Members of the local fire department will be on hand Saturday to give tours of the trucks and equipment and answer any questions.
The fire department extends its thanks to Boyer's for continued support for public safety.
