OFD Wins Third In National Fire Safety Contest
(Omaha, NE) -- The Omaha Fire Department is the winner of ten-thousand dollars as part of a nation-wide fire safety contest. OFD was recently awarded third place by the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute for a fire safety video it made. The video is called Close Before You Doze and it educates viewers on closing their doors before going to sleep to increase the chances of survival if there's a fire. The fire department will put the money toward fire safety education.
