The Salt Lake City Fire Department and other agencies are taking their message of preparedness and safety on the road this weekend.

Specifically, SLCFD representatives and gear will be at the Lowe’s Home Improvement store for a safety fair on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., 1335 S. 300 West.

The fair comes in advance of the Oct. 6-12 National Fire Prevention Week.

At Lowe’s, firefighters will be demonstrating techniques and equipment used to extricate victims from car accident scenes, and also rappelling from the top of an extended ladder truck.

SLCFD’s arson dog, Daz, will also provide a demonstration of her accelerant-smelling skills, and paramedics will provide CPR demonstrations.

Other agencies offering demonstrations at the fair include the Salt Lake City Police Department and Utah Highway Patrol.
