The Fredericktown Fire Department had a busy October month. We started with fire safety week at the school where we talked to over 500 kids. Smoke alarms was the topic but our smoke tunnel was the favorite. We also participated in the Pizza for Smoke Alarms. We changed batteries in one alarm and found the rest to all have working alarms. To end the month we had our 6th chili cook off. We had 15 teams participate with a really good crowd. The money raised will go toward a new training site for the department.
