GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --
Col. Andres Nazario, 17th Training Wing commander, signed a proclamation declaring the second week of October as Fire Prevention Week.
“The theme of this year’s Fire Prevention Week is ‘Not every hero wears a cape,’” said Nazario. “I know that this is a kick-off for a full week of activities, and we appreciate our fire department, Civil Engineering folks, and our fire academy. We look forward to seeing everyone throughout the week participating in a few of the events.”
After the signing the Norma Brown building performed a fire drill using smoke machines to check the preparedness of individuals. Once everyone was gathered to the designated area Nazario spoke about the importance of Fire Prevention Week and being prepared.
