Winston-Salem Fire Department celebrates fire prevention month throughout October each year. The national celebration of Fire Prevention Week will be held Oct. 8-14, 2017. The WSFD's Fire and Life Safety Division begins the celebration each year at the Dixie Classic Fair. Each year during the fair, the FLSD hosts the Safety Town area, which includes tours of the Safety Trailer and an outdoor course for kids. The course includes hands-on activities that reinforce the National Fire Protection Association's annual theme. This year the theme is "Every Second Counts. Plan Two Ways Out." Kids will be able to identify and demonstrate 2 ways to exit their home, and be given the tools to make a fire escape plan when they return home.
