Fire Fair at Crossway

Date: Sat. 14 Oct, 2017 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Duration: 4 Hours

FirePreventionA "Fire Fair" at Station 3 (56 Crossway) is planned for Saturday, October 14, 2017 to promote Fire Prevention Month. It will be held from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M., rain or shine.
It will be a full Fire Department effort, with participation from all three volunteer companies, explorers, as well as the career staff.

The fair will include a "Smoke Trailer" – a simulated house with a smoke machine for kids to crawl through; apparatus demonstrations; Hourly FIRE DEMONSTRATIONS; extinguisher demos; fire prevention videos; fire safety checklist completion prizes; literature and food. Other "hands on" activities for children are also planned.
The school program will take place prior to the fair. On Friday, October 13, 2017, we will visit the first grades in all of the elementary schools in the village. We will show a safety video and discuss fire prevention. We will also be handing out flyers to children of all ages to bring back home reminding the families about the fair.

This year's theme for Fire Prevention Week is "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!" Firefighters will be spreading the word about practicing your home fire drill twice a year.
Fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire escape ladders will be on sale. New this year, you can bring your home fire extinguishers to the Fair and get a free inspection. Although the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) designates October as "Fire Prevention Month", we know that emergency preparedness has to be ongoing all year round. Stay safe!
