WILTON — The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and State Farm Agent Dione Ramsdill are teaming up with the Wilton Volunteer Fire Department to support Fire Prevention Week (October 4-10, 2020), an annual public awareness campaign promoting home fire safety. 

State Farm Agents are delivering Fire Prevention Week toolkits to more than 2,500 fire departments across the country, including Wilton Volunteer Fire Department. Each toolkit includes resources for Fire Prevention Week, including brochures, magnets, posters and more. The Fire Department will be sharing these resources with schools and communities this fall in support of the campaign.

This year’s 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% – happening in the kitchen. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of these fires.
