Fire Prevention Week 2019, celebrated during the week of October 6 – 12, 2019, was recognized at BRHA’s Fall Fest event. In partnership with the City of Bristol, Virginia Fire Department and HAI Group’s annual Fire Safety Poster Contest, area youth participated in this year’s campaign, “Not every hero wears a cape.
