As Temperatures Drop, Fire Prevention Is Still Hot

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

The week of October 7, the Kalispell fire department is urging cooks to wear fitted sleeves, clear the clutter away from stovetops, and to keep a close eye on their pots and pans.

Monday, October 7 is the first day of national fire prevention week.

Fire departments across the country are raising awareness of kitchen fires.

The Kalispell fire department is putting on puppet shows for local third-graders to help spread the word.

"We do also offer some home inspections on request of the property owners if someone wants to have their house evaluated for fire safety," said Jon Campbell, the assistant fire chief for the Kalispell fire department, "We're happy to do that all year long."

To request a home inspection, or a new smoke detector, you can contact the Kalispell fire department at 406.758.7760.
