The Greenfield Fire Department will host the 32nd Annual Fire Prevention Festival the week of October 4th through October 9th, 2021. Several activities are planned for Fire Prevention Day on Saturday, October 9th. These activities include events of interest for children and adults. Starting at 9:00 a.m. there will be an Open House at the Greenfield Fire Department for the public with several antique fire trucks on display. The children can meet Smokey the Bear, Sparky and take free fire truck rides. For the adults there will be free blood pressure checks and the LIFELINE blood mobile. Exhibitors will have fire safety items such as smoke detectors, extinguishers, and collectibles for sale. Fingerprinting for children ages one to twelve will be conducted by the Weakley County Sheriff's Department in the fire station. The Tennessee Division of Forestry will have their equipment on display. From 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. local National Guard Units will have equipment displayed at the Fire Station.
A Bag Pipe Band will perform that morning and again during the parade. Concessions will be available by the Sharon Star Lodge, Bar-B-Que sandwiches and chicken plates. The Nathan Porter Library will have a used book sale from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. There will be a car show and vendors with ice cream. See schedule for details. There is a puppet show about fire safety in the fire station by the Madison Co. Fire Dept. at 10:30. They do a great job with these so bring the kids to see and learn about fire safety. Again, This Year The side-by-side live burn from the NFSA demonstrating a live fire on one side with no residential sprinkler system on the other side with a sprinkler system shows how important sprinkler systems are to saving lives and property and smoke alarms as well. Pope’s concessions will be open daily from 11:00 am – 10:00 pm.
