JBSA-Randolph community learns importance of fire prevention

By Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph Public Affairs

Fire Emergency Services at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph teamed with the National Fire Protection Association, Oct. 7-Saturday, to present Fire Prevention Week's 2012 theme, "Have 2 Ways Out." This year's fire prevention focus was the importance of planning and practicing fire escapes.

While promoting Fire Prevention Week, 902nd Civil Engineer Squadron firefighters visited various Randolph facilities, including the child development center, and the elementary school, where children learned about fire safety and evacuation procedures.

Completing this year's Fire Prevention Week, Randolph Fire Emergency Services had an open house 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. Families who attended saw vehicle displays from both military and non-military fire departments, vehicle extrication and confined space rescue demonstrations, and participated in interactive educational stations.
