MFD hosts fire prevention event 10/6 at Home Depot.


Milton's firefighters are joining their peers across the nation Oct. 6 through 12 in presenting fire safety education to youth and adults alike as part of Fire Prevention Week 2012.

Activities kick off Saturday, Oct. 6 at 9 a.m. with fire clowns, extinguisher training, a meet and greet and much more at the Home Depot on Windward Parkway in Milton.

Throughout the week, firefighters will also make appearances at local schools and community gatherings promoting safety.

"Although Milton offers year-round fire prevention programs, this week is especially active," said Fire Marshal Dr. Matthew Marietta. "We are excited about the numerous school and community programs already planned."

Of course, the City of Milton Fire-Rescue Department is here for you. To request a visit at your community or event or to inquire about general fire prevention topics, simply stop by a fire station or contact Marietta at 678-242-2570 or
