State Farm agents join in fire prevention effort

State Farm insurance agents Ken Richards and Seth Rockey joined with the National Fire Protection Association and the Clifton, Grand Junction and Lower Valley fire departments in an annual effort promoting home fire safety.

State Farm agents delivered brochures, posters and other materials to more than 2,500 fire departments across the country in preparation for Fire Prevention Week set for Oct. 4 to 10. The fire departments in turn share the resources with their communities to support the campaign.

This year, the campaign will focus on fire safety in the kitchen and preventing home cooking fires, a leading cause of fires.

“The good news is that the majority of kitchen fires are highly preventable,” Rockey said. “These great kits will help our fire departments spread the news to always stay focused when you’re in the kitchen and never leave the kitchen unattended.”
