In conjunction with the “History in the Making: Texas A&M Forest Service” exhibit and the centennial celebration of the Texas A&M Forest Service, the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum is hosting a community-wide Fire Prevention and Safety event on Saturday, October 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. TFS has joined their expertise with several local fire protection and emergency management organizations, including the Bryan Fire Department, the Rocky Creek Volunteer Fire Department, the Brazos County District 2 Volunteer Fire Department, and the Brazos County Incident Management Team to present a multi-faceted event to educate children and their families about fire safety and prevention.
Attendees will learn how to protect their families from preventable fires and create emergency safety plans for their households, including how to put out grease fires, candle and match safety, what to watch for with holiday-related fires, and using electrical appliances safely. Attendees will enjoy free refreshments, games, and a special appearance by Smokey Bear.
The event will also fulfill most of the requirements for the Fire Safety Merit Badge, as presented by the Boy Scouts. For information on how you can register for the Boy Scout Merit Badge, call (979) 691-4003.
