Event Description

My name is Mary Ann Lock and I work at Lowe's in Dyersburg, TN. We, Lowe's of Dyersburg, have teamed up with our local Fire Department and Fire Marshall Mark Sykes to put on a "Safety Saturday" at the Lowe's parking lot on October 13, 2012. We will have local law enforcement officers with K-9, E911, as many of the volunteer fire departments as possible, AirEvac, Dyer Co. Rescue Squad, Dyersburg National Guard (who have just come back from overseas not long ago) and many more participants that I am sure I am leaving out.
This event will start at 10 AM and run through 2 PM on October 13, 2012 with a live controlled burn to start around 1 AM by the Fire Marshall and his crews. This live burn will feature two 8X8 sheetrock rooms with furniture, carpet and nicknacks just as they may be set up at your home. One room with have only a cheap smoke detector while the other room will have a better detector as well as a sprinkler system. Both units will be set on fire to show the difference in the amount of time you have to get out of your home or burning building.
We, Lowe's of Dyersburg and Dyersburg Fire Department, would love to invite Channel 7 News out to join our fun and help us educate people in Fire and Home safety.
Again, this event will be on Saturday, October 13, 2012, the last day of the National Fire Prevention Week, which starts Monday, October 7, and goes thru Saturday, October 13.
Please contact me at Lowe's of Dyersburg, 731.288.4688 and ask for Mary Ann, or email me at annie9570@yahoo.com. We would greatly appreciate your assistance in helping us get the word out about "Fire Safety".
Thanks for all you do,
Mary Ann Lock
