This year’s Fire Prevention Day at Westmoreland Mall will be dedicated to the memory of former Greensburg Fire Chief Ed Hutchinson, photographed at Hutchinson & Gunter in Greensburg on Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014.

Firefighters from Hempfield, Greensburg, South Greensburg and Southwest Greensburg will join together next month for the 23rd annual Fire Prevention Day at the Westmoreland Mall.

Fire Prevention Day will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Oct. 9, at the mall, 5256 Route 30 in Hempfield.

The evening will include equipment displays, live demonstrations, a children’s fire house, fire extinguisher training and more.

The event will be dedicated to the memory of former Greensburg Fire Chief Ed “Hutch” Hutchinson, who served as chief from 1953 to 2016. Hutchinson died earlier this year, in April.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
