The fun and interactive performances carried a theme of “Prevent Kitchen Fires” and included information about “Stop, Drop and Roll,” calling 911 in an emergency, staying away from a hot stove, not playing with a stove, and being prepared for exit drills in the home. Pictured, three clowns led the show (from left) “Fireball”-Matt Stubbe, “Firepit”-Farshaun Ardestani and “Firecracker”-Mike Anthony.
