Fire Prevention Month

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.”
