Fire training

Do you know how to stay safe if fire should break out in your home?

This week is National Fire Prevention Week and, Friday, Mobile Fire-Rescue held its 2019 Fire Safety Expo.

There were fire safety events like a house burn and rescue and training demonstrations, among others.

Fire officials said there's important information we should all know about fire safety.

Steven Millhouse with Mobile Fire-Rescue said, "Have proper smoke alarms that work in your home and in your businesses and, then, of course, again, have a plan, and practice that plan.  Know how to get out of the building in case of a fire, where to go, have a special meeting place, and, of course, call 911 and stay out of the building."

Friday's Fire Expo was sponsored by Franklin Primary Health Center.
