National Wildfire Preparedness Day

Posted: Updated:
Saturday was National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day. A Texoma volunteer fire department helped keep the community informed and safe about wild fires. 

The Burkburnett Volunteer Fire Department hosted an event at the Burkburnett Community Center.  Those who attended learned how to protect their homes and families from wildfires. 

Firefighters say it is important that residents are cautious because fire danger is such a issue in Texoma.

National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day was launched by the National Fire Protection Association for the first time this year.
