HOME DEPOT EVENT LAUNCHES FIRE PREVENTION WEEK – An annual show of area fire companies’ apparatus, fire extinguishing and personal safety demonstrations, games, rides, and a helicopter (at top and below) attracted plenty of people Saturday (Oct. 7, 2017) to the Home Depot parking lot on Armand Hammer Boulevard in Pottstown. Several companies arrived with equipment shined and gear on display, ready to answer questions from both children and the young-at-heart. A similar display is planned Thursday (Oct. 12) from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Coventry Mall, 351 W. Schuylkill Rd., Pottstown. The event is free and open to the public. Both shows, staffed by dozens of hard-working volunteers, observe Oct. 8-14 as Fire Prevention Week, sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association.
