VICTORIA, Texas – On Oct. 4, the Victoria Fire Department received seven fire prevention kits. They also received five “Sparky” educator kits featuring Sparky the Fire Dog and 50 smoke alarms. During a ceremony at Fire Station 6, State Farm presented these items to VFD in honor of Fire Prevention Week.

VFD also unveiled the digital fire extinguisher simulator that State Farm provided last year. State Farm agents tested their abilities against the fire extinguisher simulator.

This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” VFD encourages you to learn the different sounds that smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. When an alarm makes a beeping or chirping sound, you must take action to protect yourself and your family.
