The South Fulton Fire Dept. visits the South Fulton Elementary and middle schools to promote the "Fire Safety" campaign.  Fire prevention is an annual event that is practiced nationwide and generally takes place during the month of October.  The South Fulton Fire Dept will be visiting daycares, schools and plan to host an open house during October's Fire Prevention Month.  The fire department encourages you to bring your family to the fire station anytime you would like a tour and to pick up any fire prevention materials they may have available.
