"This is an opportunity for residents to meet their firefighters and learn about the varied functions and duties carried out by the Fire & Rescue Department," said Craig Roepke, Chief of Fire & Rescue. "Firefighters go through frequent training to update and learn new skills to make sure that they are prepared for the numerous types of emergencies they encounter daily."
 
Safety Day in the Prairie occurs in advance of Fire Prevention Month, which takes place during October. Members of Pleasant Prairie Fire & Rescue encourage all residents to have a fire safety plan and discuss fire safety with members of their household.
