VALDOSTA – October is Fire Prevention Month, and kids in South Georgia are finding a fun way to learn about fire safety.

On Wednesday, the Valdosta Fire Department brought their ‘Kid’s Safety House’ to Open Bible.

They say the goal is not only to have fun, but share their lesson with friends and family.

“When they do come home we want them to bug their parents to checking the smoke alarms, or doing a family escape plan,” says Tangela Rowe, with VFD. “It’s just to get them excited about it, so that the family can do it all together and understand that it’s fun, but it’s actually important too.”

They say they’re making visits and scheduling tours all month to raise awareness.
