Fire Prevention Week a reminder of fire safety

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and State Farm Agent Frank Nerychel are teaming up with the Sheridan Community Fire Department to support Fire Prevention Week, an annual public awareness campaign that promotes critical home fire safety messages.

NFPA has been the official sponsor of the campaign for more than 90 years. The campaign works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.
