National Fire Prevention Week began Oct. 4 and runs through Saturday, Oct. 10. To kick things off, the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company hosted an open house and demonstration of residential fire sprinklers at the company’s Rehoboth Avenue home.
Representatives from Indian River Fire Company and Roxana Fire Company joined the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company for the event.
The New Jersey Fire Sprinkler Advisory Board was also on hand with one of its demonstration trailers to highlight the effectiveness, efficiency and safety of residential fire sprinklers.
