On Saturday October 6th from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm, we will host an open house at Station 2 on Sherwood Avenue. Please stop by with your children. We will have our trucks out for them to sit in, gear for them to try on and other fun things to do. They can even put out a “fire” on our digital simulator with a real fire hose. We’ll have many “photo ops”, so bring a camera!
The theme of this year’s Fire Prevention Week is “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere.” Through three simple calls-to-action, this year’s theme identifies basic but essential ways people can reduce their risk to fire and be prepared in the event of one:
Look for places fire can start, Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm, Learn two ways out of each room
If you do not have an escape plan for your home, please make one with your whole family. Also, please practice this plan at least twice a year.
Please check out this Fire Safety Checklist. You can download it and check your home.
