Fire Prevention Month

It was the start of a normal day of work and I was just booting up my workstation to tackle unfinished projects when I heard fire trucks approaching. I can tell it is more than one fire truck due to the warbling tone of their sirens interlacing with the early morning air penetrating to the concrete wall of my office so I rushed back outside to check there may be a big fire nearby to warrant my concern. As the sounds got louder and as I stared with an expression of "whats up?", it hit me flat in the face that it is already March and summer is about to begin and here are the fire departments in our town out on their annual campaign to prevent accidental fires from carelessness often aggravated by onset of the hot summer temperature. I wonder if it also happening elsewhere?

Maybe you missed the drill? Or there are other ways the fire department conducted the fire prevention awareness, just the same, lets just be conscious of the possibilities of fire this summer season.

Our fire brigades do some burning off of vacant blocks and so on but they don't normally use their sirens unless they are on their way to a fire.

Right using sirens outside of fire response could create confusion just like the boy who cried "wolf!"
