The Mount Vernon Fire Department is taking a different approach this year to Fire Prevention Week. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the department is putting its fire prevention tips online. “The idea is to provide some information in a time where you can’t bring someone into a station and have that one-on-one interaction,” Fire Chief Bryan Brice said. “Everybody knows that fires are out there, everybody is aware of the danger of fires but this is a time where we try to bring it to light again and say there are a lot of things we can do to make our communities safer.” In partnership with the city of Mount Vernon’s TV10, the department has created a series of videos, including a bunker gear demonstration where firefighter Gideon Lamb shows and explains what each part of the firefighter uniform does. Other videos include an ambulance and station tour, story time, and a safe cooking demonstration. All can be accessed through the city’s YouTube page.
