Midland National Bank will sponsor a free fire safety event at their main bank branch at 527 N. Main St. in downtown Newton from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Friday.

The public is invited to go through the Newton Fire Safety Trailer and other Fire/EMS vehicles, as well as visit with the Fire/EMS personnel on site.

The bank will be serving free hot dogs, chips and drinks. There will also be a drawing for a Kindle Fire and two fire extinguishers.

A free smoke alarm will be given to those opening new checking accounts or taking out new home loans as well as for those participating in Midland’s Tell-A-Friend program. Home loan specials will also be available through the bank.

Midland will donate $5 to the Newton Fire/EMS Department for every new checking account opened between Oct. 14 and Nov. 30.
