BANGOR – Bangor’s fire department has a new tool that will help prevent fires.
This new van will be used by the departments fire prevention officer as he travels to talk about fire safety. This van is replacing the old one which was inherited from the police department. The old van would no longer pass inspections.
The new van will have fire prevention material on board that will be used in presentations and is decorated with important fire safety messages.
Firefighter Jake Johnson said “You’re driving along and someone sees the messages reminding them to check their smoke detector. Who knows, maybe it will get them to think about it and take the time to test the detector to make sure it works.”
Jake Johnson said it’s easy for schools and other organizations to request fire safety demonstrations.
All you have to do is give him a call at the Bangor Fire Department.
