[ARCHIVED] Malden’s Fifth Annual Public Safety Day

Public Safety Day Flyer

In commemoration of Fire Prevention Week, the Malden Fire and Police Departments will hold their Fifth Annual Public Safety Day at Linden Park and School, 29 Wescott Street on Sunday, October 15th from 11 AM-2 PM. Fire Prevention Week is a time that all are encouraged to recognize the dangers that can occur in the places we feel the safest. This year’s theme is “Cooking Safety Starts with you! Pay attention to fire prevention.” Cooking is the leading cause of home fires, with nearly half of all home fires involving cooking equipment.

Families and residents are invited to the free event for fun and interactive ways to learn more about safety. There will be “touch-a-truck” events where children can learn about and climb on fire engines and ladders, police cars, an ambulance and DPW trucks. There will be music, face painting by the Girl Scouts, a K-9 demonstration by the State Police and free hotdogs, slush, pumpkins, bike helmets and much more!

The event is being sponsored by Cataldo Ambulance, Malden Housing Authority, Malden DPW, Piantedosi Baking Co., Stop & Shop, Anthony’s of Malden, Ward 8 Councillor Jadeane Sica, City Councillor-At-Large Craig Spadafora, Ward 6 Councillor Steve Winslow, Ward 1 City Councillor Peg Crowe, Anthony’s of Malden, Malden Firefighters Local 902 and Malden Girl Scouts.

Fire Prevention Week is observed every October in remembrance of the Great Chicago Fire that began on October 8, 1871 and killed more than 250 people, along with destroying more than 17,400 structures across 2,000 acres. In 1911, 40 years after the fire, the Fire Marshals Association determined that the anniversary of this fire should be observed annually to generate awareness about fire prevention.
