This Saturday Leeds Fire and Rescue, in partnership with First Alert, will hold a fire safety education event at Lowe’s as part of Fire Prevention Month.
The event will be part of a nation-wide effort by First Alert and Lowe’s to promote fire safety to the public. Lowe’s in Leeds will be among many other locations in Alabama and in the country to take part.
In particular First Alert urges the public to keep working and up-to-date fire alarms in their homes. According to the company, three in five fire deaths are the results of homes without working alarms and some with none at all.
Leeds Fire and Rescue’s educational event will take place at 9 a.m. at the Leeds Lowe’s store, which is located at 8900 Weaver Ave.
