Boonville Mayor Julie Thacher signed a proclamation on Monday signaling Fire Prevention Week along with Boonville Fire Chief Tim Carmichael, members of the Boonville Fire Department and Zion Lutheran Preschool. Fire Prevention Week signals a time when preschool to fifth grade students get brushed up on their fire safety knowledge. Carmichael said that this year he is focusing on telling students the importance of having two ways out of a fire. He also said that they still teach the same basic knowledge of 30 years ago but stressed the importance of children knowing these things when they are young.
