This year, Monrovia Fire & Rescue will be participating in Fire Prevention Week. This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years,” represents the final year of a three-year effort to educate the public about basic, but essential elements of smoke alarm safety. As part of the campaign, Monrovia firefighters will be visiting Monrovia Unified School District (MUSD) 4th grade classrooms during the week of October 10, 2016.
The teaching point will be centered on the importance of checking to ensure smoke detectors are not expired. To conclude the week, on October 15, 2016, Monrovia Fire & Rescue will be opening its doors at Station 101, located at 141 E. Lemon Ave., to the general public between the hours of 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. In order to gain access to Station 101, a simple quiz regarding smoke alarms will need to be completed and/or the smoke alarm challenge sheet will need to be submitted. For more information on Fire Prevention Week and the links to the quiz and the challenge sheet, visit our website at http://www.cityofmonrovia.org/fire/page/fire-department-press-releases.
