Yuma Fire Department Press Releases
We would like to get the message out that parents need to talk about fire safety with their children. There is no reason for children to have matches or lighters in their possession, or access to them in their home. Curiosity about fire is normal, so it is all that much more important to teach your children fire is a serious thing, and not a toy.
The week of October 7th thru the 13th is Fire Prevention Week nationwide and also has been proclaimed here in Yuma by Mayor Douglas Nicholls. Observation of Fire Prevention Week included a Tuesday (October 9th) night event that included the reading of the proclamation by Mayor Nicholls, with the highlighting of advances in fire prevention by Fire Marshal Kayla Holiman and special recognitions of several City of Yuma Fire personnel.READ MORE
