SB Fire Department prepares for Fire Prevention Week


Sunday is the start of Fire Prevention Week and one South Bend Fire station opened its doors to educate families.

The open house allowed kids to learn fire safety tips, watch extinguisher and sprinkler demonstrations and meet firemen in full gear, something the fire chief says is important.

"What we try to do is in a non threatening type of environment, we show them what we do, what we wear, the equipment that they're going to be confronted with in that type of a situation so they know not to be scared," says Fire Chief Stephen Cox.

There was also face painting, games and a bounce house at the event.
