PARKERSBURG, W. Va. (WTAP) - This week is fire prevention week and local fire departments are going out to teach the public about fire safety.
The Parkersburg Fire Department went to First Presbyterian Church to teach young children about what to do when there is a fire.
One important thing was showing the children what a firefighter looks and sounds like while in full gear.
Demonstrations were done by fire departments for children and adults as it was stressed you are never too old to learn about fire safety.
