City agencies partnered with the county and Home Depot to demonstrate the importance of fire and driver safety.
In Home Depot's parking lot, city and county fire trucks were set up to show the importance of having a safety plan and making sure your fire extinguishers are up-to-date.
VPD even designed a driving course for citizens to text while driving, so they could see how dangerous it is.
"Because it distracts your vision from the road, which it shouldn't be to your phone or the device you're using to text," said Vernotis Williams, with the Valdosta Police Department. "Texting while driving can cause you to get yourself seriously injured or killed."
The event is part of Fire Prevention Month, which is happening throughout October.
