Florence Township firefighter Carol Taylor helps Richie Bates, 4, of Florence Township, as he maneuvers through one of the stations that was set up that evening to teach junior firefighters to stay low to the ground.

Despite the rain, residents came out to support the event, which, according to officials, began about eight years ago. Since 1922, Fire Prevention Week has been observed the week of Oct. 9, according to the National Fire Protection Association website.
