It's Fire Prevention Week!
While this year’s in-person activities have been cancelled due to COVID-19, the Fire Department wants to remind residents about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from the dangers of fire. Learn more about this year’s campaign from the National Fire Protection Association, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen".
Fire sprinklers can save lives. Watch this informative video, brought to you by the Western Springs Department of Fire & EMS, and the Northern Illinois Fire Sprinkler Advisory Board (NIFSAB). NIFSAB is a nonprofit organization dedicated in part to raising public awareness by demonstrating the proven performance of fire sprinklers in saving both lives and property.
Please also enjoy this virtual fire station tour with some of our very own Department of Fire & EMS personnel.
Let's make every week fire prevention week, by learning how to stop fires before they start!
