Fire Prevention Week is October 4th – October 10th
Local firefighters all over NW Arkansas and the American Red Cross are kicking off National Fire Prevention Week by promoting basic safety tips that could save lives during a fire.
Arkansas averages four fires per day throughout the entire state. It also ranks as the third deadliest in the country, according to FEMA.
