Fire Fair At Crossway Firehouse

Start Date: Saturday, October 20, 2018 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

FirefairA "Fire Fair" at Station 3 (56 Crossway) is planned for Saturday, October 20, 2018 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 19, 2018, firefighters will visit the first grades in all of the elementary schools in the village. They will show a safety video and discuss fire prevention and will hand 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 “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate about three basic but essential steps to take to reduce the likelihood of having a fire – and how to escape safely in the event of one:
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!
