Roseville firefighters really know how to cook, and they plan to dish up a hearty serving of the best Booya around. Join the Fire Department Auxiliary at its annual fundraiser on Sunday, October 4, at 11:00 a.m. at the VFW Post #7555, 1145 Woodhill Drive.
Booya is a hearty beef, chicken and vegetable soup. It will be available for $5.00 per serving. Hot dogs and other food items will also be available for purchase.
Money raised at the event goes to firefighters or their families in a time of need and to firefighter athletic/fitness programs. They donate funds to community programs such as the Roseville Area High School lock-in, school safety patrol, fire explorers, and other programs not funded through taxpayer dollars.
The Booya kicks off Fire Prevention Week, October 4-10. This year, the message is: Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm.
Half of all U.S. home fire deaths occur between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m., when people are most likely to be sleeping. Having a working smoke alarm in the home cuts the risk by half. It is extremely important to have working smoke alarms in all bedrooms. Get more fire safety tips, at www.cityofroseville.com/fire.
