Monday through Friday 8am - 5pm
To help Columbia residents understand how dangerous home fires truly are and to inform them of the steps they can take to stay safer, the Columbia Fire Department along with Columbia Area Career Center and State Farm will be presenting a dramatic side-by-side fire and sprinkler burn demonstration at the Columbia Area Career Center located at 4203 S. Providence Road on Friday, October 4.
We will be constructing two fire demonstration units for this live burn. Both will have smoke alarms and one will have a fire sprinkler system installed so we can show the audience the life-saving difference this vital protection makes when fire strikes.
This is sure to draw a large crowd and to round it out we will have firefighters on the scene as well as fire apparatus. We will also provide an educational briefing as part of the event.
The fire demonstration will begin at 1:30 pm and last approximately 45 minutes. We hope you will join us.
