Tower truck rides, fire hose practice, and rescue demonstrations will highlight tomorrow’s open house at the downtown firehall.
Fire Chief Dan Verdun says the hall is looking forward to welcoming the public back for the popular family-friendly event.
“This is our first post-COVID event and we’re very much looking forward to it, and expect a fantastic turnout with some phenomenal weather by the looks of it,” he says. “It’s going to be a great time. We’re going to have the barbecue going, cooking hot dogs, and providing some really great information about what we do and how we do it.”
Firefighters will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate rescue tools and equipment. People will also be able to get a bird’s eye view of downtown from the bucket on the ladder truck. At 11 am firefighters will do a live demonstration of a vehicle rescue, and a high-angle rope rescue at 1 pm.
The event runs from 10 am to 2 pm.
