Car Fire Safety Demonstration Offered by Black Hawk Volunteer Fire Department

While volunteer fire departments assist with numerous wildfires in the region, they also have a hand in extinguishing car fires. In order to raise awareness for the danger of car fires, the Black Hawk Volunteer Fire Department provided a demonstration of safety techniques for car fires at its second annual open house, reports KOTA News. The event also served as a fundraiser for the volunteer department.

The open house allowed community members to learn more about the department and meet its firefighters. The department estimates that it receives over 400 calls per year for a variety of safety situations.
