EUGENE, Ore. - In honor of Fire Prevention Week, Jerry's hosted their 22nd annual "Fire Safety Saturday" at both their Springfield and Eugene locations on October 14.

With the colder season approaching, people will more often be lighting fires in their houses and keeping heaters on. Jerry's wanted this even to leave people feeling more knowledgeable about how to keep their home both warm and safe.

”So we really want to make sure that they’ve got the proper equipment as far as all the smoke detectors and alarms that are available, and know what to do when they do happen. So people have a plan and we just wanna make sure that our community and our area is safe," said one of the facilitators, Brian Przybyla.

The Eugene location hosted Lane Fire Authority while the Springfield location hosted Eugene Springfield Fire. Both locations had different displays from antique fire engines to search dogs and much more. 

The Oregon-wide theme for this year's Fire Prevention Week was "Every Second Counts, Plan 2 Ways Out."
