October is Fire Prevention Month

The Commissioners join with Fire Marshal Jeff McMahon and Worcester County Volunteer Firemen’s Association Liaison Tim Jerscheid to proclaim October 4-10, 2020 as Worcester County Fire Prevention Week and October as Fire Prevention Month, with the theme “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen.” This National Fire Protection Association’s 2020 campaign theme spotlights the need to avoid multitasking and other distractions while in the kitchen, as unattended cooking is the leading cause of home fires. Instead, stay focused and keep an eye on what you are cooking.
