Vestal Fire Department Kicks of Fire Safety Week with Expo

Sunday is the first day of Fire Prevention Week and Saturday people in the area had the opportunity to learn more about fire safety from the Vestal Fire Department.

The department held it's annual fire safety expo where firefighters showed adults and children the inside of fire trucks and how to use a fire extinguisher. Police and local EMS personnel were also at the event.

"It could give you a little peace of mind to see whatever it is that's going to roll up in front of your house, what they're capable of doing, and have actually met some of the people that might be in your house," Carle Truman, Vestal Fire Marshall said.

Children participated in a fire safety house demonstration that shows how to get out of a smoking house safely. Fire departments will visit schools in the area this week for more fire safety events.
