The Grand Forks AFB Fire Department supports this national education initiative by hosting multiple events and visiting local schools to educate all ages about the danger of fire. To kick off the week’s festivities, Col. Timothy Bush, 319th Air Base Wing commander, signed the 2012 Fire Prevention Week proclamation alongside Sparky. Senior Airman Timothy Jordan, a fire protection journeyman from the 319th Civil Engineer Squadron, dressed up as Sparky for this event. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Luis Loza Gutierrez)
