Prescott Fire promotes safety at weekend Expo
The Prescott Fire Department along with regional partner agencies gathered on Cortez St. bordering the Courthouse Plaza to participate in the annual Wildfire Expo presented by the Prescott Area Wildland/Urban Interface Commission (PAWUIC).
The Expo was a joint production between the PAWUIC and Williamson Valley Fire District Arts & Crafts Show and drew hundreds of interested spectators to the downtown plaza.
Attendees had an opportunity to meet their local firefighters, check out antique fire engines, and get first hand information on creating defensible space. Youngsters also had an opportunity to take a photo with Smokey Bear and tour Prescott Fire Department Engine 72 with firefighter and medic Doug Harwood. Wildland Code Enforcement Officer Ted Ralston was particularly busy at his booth handling the many inquiries from residents gathering information aabout creating defensible space around their homes.
