Next week is Fire Prevention Week and the Quincy Fire Department has some activities schedule in conjunction with the week. On Saturday, the QFD will host a kick-off event at the Quincy Mall. 

The public is invited to come by from 10 to 2 Saturday to participate in the Children’s Firefighter Obstacle Course, try on firefighter’s gear, have a photo opportunity and  spray water from a fire hose.

Youngsters can also win one of several fire safety ladders to be given away. Food and drinks will be sold and all proceeds will benefit the public education programs of the Quincy Fire Department.

The event is sponsored by the Quincy Mall, Refreshment Services Pepsi and TGI Fridays.
