Annual Fire Fest
Often imitated, but never duplicated, NLRFD’s Annual Fire Fest celebrates National Fire Prevention Week with kids’ activities, an obstacle course, truck displays, free health screenings, food and fun.
Fire Fest is held during National Fire Prevention Week (2nd week of October). This years Fire Fest will be on Thursday October 8th at the Kroger on McCain and North HIlls. National Fire Prevention Week is the longest running public health and safety observance on record. It was established in 1922 to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres.
Kids’ Fire Academy
The North Little Rock Fire Department hosts the Kids’ Fire Academy each summer for kids 8-12. Kids’ Fire Academy is a great way for kids to have fun while learning important fire safety skills as well as fire prevention and bicycle safety.
For Academy dates and information, contact the Fire Marshal’s office at (501) 812-5942 or (501) 812-5941, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
