Painted Post fire department spreads awareness and fun

PAINTED POST, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - October 8 - October 14 is National Fire Prevention Week and fire fighters across the country are spreading awareness about fire safety, including some in Painted Post.

The Forest View Gang Mills Fire Department opened their house to the public Sunday providing fun activities for children and their families.

The Red Cross and Natural Gas officials were there demonstrating home safety tips to keep in mind throughout the year.

New York State Police and the Steuben County Sheriffs Deputies were there as well.

Officials say the goal is to get the information out to help keep you and your family safe.

"We want people to practice safety, to be safe and to take something home with them today that will help them in the future in case they have an incident in their home and something they learn here today will help them get through that," said Gang Mills Fire Chief Pete Bierwiler.

This is just one of many open houses this week.
