WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Local firefighters are putting a fun spin on keeping you and your families safe.

The Sugar Creek Fire Department is celebrating Fire Prevention Week.

The nationwide push aims to educate people about staying safe when it comes to fires.

Normally, Sugar Creek Fire only hosts a parade ever year, but they decided to add on to it a couple of years ago.

Besides the parade, families could come to the station in West Terre Haute and learn about the local first responders and the work they do.

Firefighters said talking with kids in a fun setting shows them there's nothing to be afraid of.

"When they see us in the fires they're really scared of it," said Lt. Sam McClain, "So for them to actually feel comfortable and come out and learn about us, and realize that we're just normal human beings just like they are, it's refreshing to see."

National Fire Prevention Week runs from October 7th to the 13th.
