October is National Fire Prevention Month, so area fire departments are spending a lot of time visiting schools and senior centers, sharing fire prevention tips. Fairhaven Firefighter Wayne Oliveira joins Jim Phillips to discuss fire prevention in the home, especially during the upcoming holiday season. Fires can be devastating during the holidays and year-round, so tune in and learn ways to avoid tragedies.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
