Victoria Fire Department & State Farm

Victoria Fire Department employees and State Farm representatives pose for a photo with a Jake from State Farm cutout during a ceremony held Oct. 4 at Fire Station 6 in honor of Fire Prevention Week.

On Oct. 4, the Victoria Fire Department received seven fire prevention kits, five “Sparky” educator kits, featuring Sparky the Fire Dog, and 50 smoke alarms from State Farm during a ceremony at Fire Station 6 in honor of Fire Prevention Week.

The Victoria Fire Department also unveiled the digital fire extinguisher simulator that State Farm provided last year. State Farm agents tested their abilities against the fire extinguisher simulator.

This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” The Victoria Fire Department encourages residents to learn the different sounds that smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. When an alarm makes a beeping or chirping sound, residents must take action to protect themselves and their families.
