Northville… In commemoration of Fire Prevention Week, the Northville City Fire Department (NCFD) will host open houses from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 10 -15 at Station 1 in Northville, 215 W. Main; and Oct. 9 – 15 at Station 2 in Plymouth, 201 S. Main, where it also provides fire and EMS services.

The department is also offering a free home-fire-safety review to make fire safety recommendations. During the review, a team of fire department personnel will meet with residents at their home, review items such as smoke detectors, electrical outlets, storage of flammable materials, home escape plans and other items that can impact home fire safety. Residents will receive a written report of recommendations.

During the open houses, fire department staff will visit with guests, distribute fire safety information and provide tours of the stations and equipment.

“All are welcome to stop by, meet your local firefighters and EMS personnel, and learn about how to protect your home, business and family,” said Fire Chief Steve Ott.

Group tours are available; for more information about group tours or a home fire safety review, call 248-449-9920 in Northville or 734-453-1234, ext. 280, in Plymouth.

It continued into the next day and did the most extensive damage on Oct. 9. It is observed each year during the week that includes Oct. 9.
