After The Fire Block Tour:
Tonight the crew from Prospect & Norwood headed out to the 700blk of 9th ave for our after the fire block tour. The team went door to door checking smoke detectors and batteries, handing out fire prevention literature and talking to residence. The team installed several detectors and replaced several batteries. The crew also replaced batteries in co meters. The crew worked for a little over an hour and a good time was had by all-!

AFTER THE FIRE BLOCK TOUR:
12 years ago the Prospect Park Fire Co. started the program of after a working building fire in our town, we will visit the entire block and go door to door to make sure that all the residents have working smoke detectors and fresh batteries in them. If they do not, we will provide a free smoke detector and install it free of charge. By installing the smoke detector we ensure that it installed and installed properly in the optimum location. Then we train the resident how to test the unit and change the battery. We remind our neighbors to test the detector monthly and change the batteries when you change the clocks for day light savings time. The crews will also hand out Fire Prevention Literature to help ensure our residents are prepared en-case an emergency should happen to them. We also encourage them to attend our annual Fire Prevention Open House in October during Fire Prevention Week. If you or anybody you know that lives in Prospect Park needs a smoke detector please call us at (610)-522-1830
