The first full week of each October is recognized nationally as Fire Prevention Week. So each October our Fire & Life Safety Clowns visit each school in the area. The Clown Group performs a different show every year that educates elementary school children about fire and life safety topics. Each show is developed and performed by a select group who are full time firefighters when they are not "clowning" around. Matchez, with his buddies, Res-Q and BoosteR are an important part of our Fire Prevention Program.
