The Jamaica Fire Brigade (JFB) will be observing Fire Safety Awareness Week 2014 from October 26 to November 1, under the theme: ‘Community in Action…Supporting Fire Prevention’.

Speaking with JIS News, Public Relations Office of the JFB, Emeleo Ebanks, said the theme is to highlight the importance of community involvement in preventing fires.

He said the focus will be year long, and is “part of a broad approach to have communities being proactive. This is what makes this year’s emphasis different as most of the activities are geared towards community involvement on a large scale. This includes not only prevention, but basic fire training.”

Fire Safety Awareness Week 2014 will begin with a national church service at the Pentecostal Assembly of Jesus in Spicy Hill, Trelawny. Other activities will include fire drills, community workshops and training sessions island-wide.

The brigade will also host an award ceremony to recognize the safest schools and most compliant entities.
