The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department plans to continue its decades-long tradition of offering open houses and community activities during Fire Prevention week in early October.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FCFRD will host a virtual open house on Saturday, Oct. 10 and virtual activities during the week of Oct. 5.
The department will host several activities surrounding this year’s theme, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen.”
Here’s more on the events:
