State Farm Agents are delivering Fire Prevention Week toolkits to more than 2500 fire departments across the country, including Olean Fire Department & Allegany Volunteer Fire Department. Each toolkit includes resources for Fire Prevention Week (October 4-10, 2020), including brochures, magnets, posters and more. The Fire Departments and SKSTNY will be sharing these resources with schools and communities this month in support of the campaign.
This year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, "Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen" focuses on cooking fire safety. Home cooking fires represent the leading cause of all fires with nearly half - 49 percent - happening in the kitchen. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of these fires.
We are excited for this partnership and for this coming week!
