October is National Fire Prevention Month. DeSoto District 1 at Logansport is working to make everyone aware of the dangers of fire.
Chief Mark Magee told the Journal, “Some of the activities this month included having a booth at the patriotic festival on the riverfront in Logansport last Saturday. We passed out information showcasing our abilities. And we are conducting a fundraiser raffling a gun safe.” Also this month, Magee said they are making presentations in area schools on fire safety.
Fire District 1 is also installing smoke detectors in area homes. Magee said, “If you have a house and need a smoke detector, contact the fire station on Marshall Road in Logansport.”
