As part of National Fire Prevention Month, the Waltham Fire Department will team up with Papa Gino's to help educate the community on fire safety and prevention Sunday Oct. 16 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., according to event organizers.
For the past 17 years, New England fire departments and Papa Gino’s have helped more than 2 million people by supplying educational materials and free pizza at fire safety open houses, according to a prepared statement.
Some featured visuals will include firefighters demonstrating the way to escape a smoke-filled room, cooking safety tips, fire prevention advice and an encounter with Sparky, the fire safety mascot.
Each year, fires claim hundreds of lives throughout New England. Fire Safety Open Houses are geared towards educating the community and preparing them for potential fires, according to event organizers.
