The Winston-Salem Fire Department will hold a series of “Fire Talks” during September and October to promote fire safety and solicit feedback from citizens on how the department can better serve the community.
Fire Talks will be held at 11 a.m.:
- Sept. 13 at Fire Station 7, 100 Arbor Road;
- Sept. 20 at Fire Station 11, 2745 Waughtown St.;
- Sept. 27 at Fire Station 9, 4685 Ogburn Ave.; and
- Oct. 4 at Fire Station 2, 405 Somerset Drive.
At the Fire Talks, fire administrators will set up displays and make a presentation about services the Fire Department provides, followed by a question and answer period. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a survey on fire services. The survey will also be posted on CityofWSFire.org for citizens who cannot attend a Fire Talk, said Fire Chief Antony Farmer.
“We all share the same goal,” Farmer said, “which is to make our homes and workplaces safer. I encourage all citizens to attend one of our Fire Talks so that we can hear about your needs and expectations. Together we can make Winston-Salem the safest possible community.”
