Stop, Drop, and Roll Your Way to Fire Prevention Night

This week is Fire Prevention Week, and the Fire Departments of Jenkintown are hosting an event on Thursday, Oct. 13th, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. This event will be held on Greenwood Avenue between Leedom Street and York Road. This portion of Greenwood Avenue will be closed to allow for this event.
