Celebrates National Fire Protection Week’s 100th Year with Smokey Bear, Food & Music

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (SEPT 19, 2022) – Local fire safety organizations and businesses are coming together in downtown Prescott to celebrate the 100th year of National Fire Prevention Week and the 78th birthday of Smokey Bear in a street festival outside Founding Fathers Collective at 281 N. Granite Street. The one-day event on Saturday, October 15, 2022, from 10am to 4pm, will highlight local businesses who can help residents prepare for future fire risks and keep our communities safe from fire. Local fire agencies attending the event include Prescott Fire Department, Yavapai Firewise/PAWUIC, Prescott National Forest, Arizona Public Safety, AZ Wildfires & Incident Management Academy, Peeples Valley Fire District, Prescott Firefighters Charities, Community Risk Reduction Prevention, All West Fire & Security, Sedona Fire, Yavapai County Office of Emergency Management, and Yavapai County Jeep Posse, to name a few. Admission is free.

“Our area is surrounded by national forests. We all need to be diligent and prepare for fires that can happen any time of the year - not just during fire season,” said Jon Aten of All West Fire & Security, a sponsor of the event. “Everyone who attends the Fire Wise Festival will come away with information that can help prevent fires and save lives.”

A visit from Smokey Bear, hosted by the Prescott National Forest will be a highlight of the day.

“It’s Smokey’s 78th Birthday, and we’re honored he’ll be here in Prescott to help us celebrate,” said Jesse Burke of Founding Fathers Collective. “We’ll have birthday cake for Smokey and all the kids to enjoy, a bouncy house, and big red fire engines to check out. Adults can enjoy our Fire Engine Brew.”

In addition to fire safety tips from experts, the family-friendly event will feature live contained fire demonstrations, food, and music.

The event is sponsored by Founding Fathers Collective, All West Fire & Security, Barrett Propane, Yavapai Fire Wise/PAWUIC, Yavapai County Contractors Association, and Trafficade Service Companies.
