During a trip through the festival a child will learn how to stop, drop and roll, practice Exit Drills In the Home (E.D.I.T.H.), hear the sound a smoke detector makes and learn how to stay low and go.

Children also will get to see an ambulance up close, take a fire station tour and meet a firefighter dressed in protective clothing.

The festival will take place daily from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

For more information, or if you have a home school group or you are a child care provider and would like to attend, call the Mount Prospect Fire Prevention Bureau at (847) 818-5253 to schedule a visit.
