GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
Oct. 8 through 14 marks Fire Prevention Week and in observation of that Col. Ricky Mills, 17th Training Wing commander, signed the Fire Prevention Week proclamation at the Norma Brown Building on Goodfellow Air Force Base Oct 5.
During a speech after a fire drill with the fire department on base, Mills spoke on this year’s theme of “Every Second Counts: Plan Two Ways Out” and how seconds can make the difference between escaping to safely or tragedy. The National Fire Protection Association provides additional information and plans to help teach children of the dangers of fires and how to escape a fire on their own.
