EdVenture will kick off National Fire Prevention Week a few days early by hosting “Tame the Flame” Saturday, Sept. 28.
The 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. event offers several learning opportunities throughout the day. Fire trucks will be on site as firefighters display the tools and equipment used to fight a fire.
