NORWAY — The Child Health Center will be joined by the Oxford Hills Fire
Prevention and Safety Team for the second annual Fire Safety Field Day. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Child Health Center, 16 Madison Ave. The slogan for the year is “Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned.”

The event will offer every member of a household information on how to stay fire smart. Children and adults will learn ways to keep every household safe.

Those attending will learn about smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and how to ensure that detectors are appropriately placed in a home and working properly. Attendees will learn how to make escape plans and why it is important to set up a meeting place outside the home once every member of the family escapes.

Fire trucks from towns throughout the Oxford Hills will be at the event for viewing and attendees can talk with firefighters and fire education resource people. Local businesses that sell alternative stoves and accessories will be on hand to talk about safety issues when using these items. Firefighters will go through training exercises in the Waterford burn trailer. The Norway smoke trailer will also be at the event.

Indoors, there will be activities for kids and parents. Safety officers will talk about Halloween safety and stranger safety. There will be demonstrations on infrared technology. The Mason’s will offer the CHIP program where parents will receive child identification kits to take home and keep for their child’s safety.
