The Menlo Fire Department is reminding area residents that this week is Fire Prevention Week.  Residents are reminded to check their smoke detectors, kitchen fire extinguishers and review home escape plans.

An open house is scheduled at the Menlo Fire Department on Tuesday October 7th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM.  Residents will get to tour the fire hall, look over the various pieces of fire fighting equipment and talk with local firefighters about fire prevention tips in the home and community.
