Fire safety event announced
Aug. 6, 2013 — Susanville residents can be safer from fire danger thanks to the American Automobile Association Susanville and the Susanville Volunteer Fire Department as they sponsor a fire safety event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17 at the AAA office located at 2920 Main St. in Susanville.
This new partnership between the insurance company and the Susanville Volunteer Fire Department is part of AAA’s ongoing effort to support local first responder organizations in an effort to help local communities learn how to work together to become stronger, safer and more prepared for emergencies.
In June, AAA Susanville provided funding for the event through a $5,000 donation to the Susanville Volunteer Fire Department to support its volunteer efforts and educational outreach.
Residents can learn about the best fire safety practices and make sure they have a properly installed and functioning smoke detector in their home. Firefighters will make appointments for a free home smoke detector installation or a checkup.
The Susanville Volunteer Fire Department also will have its Fire Safe House to teach children what to do in the event of a fire.
In addition, AAA Susanville will provide home safety tips and pass out materials on how to prepare your home for fire season. A tow truck will also be on hand to conduct free battery and tire pressure checks. Refreshments will be served.
AAA, through its philanthropic mission, is committed to supporting first responders — police officers, firefighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians and others who sacrifice their own safety in order to help others in their time of greatest need.
For more information, call AAA Susanville at 252-5000.
