Fire Prevention Week is coming up in October from the 8th to the 14th.
A large percentage of fires at home occur due to cooking mishaps.
Having a plan ready in case of an emergency can be helpful in preventing injury.
Making sure you have working smoke detectors is a must, checking charging cords for frayed wires, and using proper cookware when in the kitchen and help prevent a fire.
The Pas Fire Department is currently in need of paid on-call and volunteer firefighters. Anyone interested in joining is asked to call 431-355-1516.
