The Wichita Fire Department will unveil a new fire safety initiative called “Project Apartment Safety” which is in response to an alarming number of apartment fires cause by careless smoking and inattentive cooking.
The WFD will launch this door to door campaign at nine o'clock on Friday morning, Oct. 12, at the Silver Springs Apartments located at 777 North Silver Springs.
The WFD will also visit three other apartment complexes during this fire safety initiative.
Fire safety literature will be left for all apartment tenants, including apartment managers, on how to reduce the risk of fire.
For future information or questions regarding fire prevention safety, please call Fire Prevention at (316) 268-4441.
