Winslow Fire Fighters have a New Smoke House

Updated 5 years ago

“Stay fire smart, don’t get burned.” That’s the motto firefighters across the nation will be touting this fall. Fire prevention week is October 4th through the 10th and will focus on burn awareness and prevention, as well as keeping homes safe from the leading causes of home fires.Winslow firefighters have a new tool they’ll be rolling out. The smoke trailer was bought by the department a couple years ago and the final touches are being made to it this week. The “made up” home is filled with fire hazards. Firefighters will bring the trailer to Winslow area schools where 4th graders will be able to check it out and learn from the dangers that lurk inside.Dozens of local businesses have pitched to work on the trailer or donate items for the inside. The trailer is piped to pump in theatrical smoke too, a feature firefighters say will teach them how to get out of a burning home.
