firefairFire Fair 2019

A "Fire Fair" at Station 3 at 56 Crossway is planned for Saturday, October 19, 2019 to promote Fire Prevention Month. It will be held from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M., rain or shine. The fair 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 18, 2019, 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. They will also distribute flyers to children of all ages to bring back home reminding the families about the fair.

This year’s theme for Fire Prevention Week “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

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!
