Fire Department Virtual Open House - October 4 through October 10, 2020

For many years, our Fire Department has hosted an Open House during Fire Prevention Week, the week of October 9, with fun and educational displays and demonstrations in the station and on the training grounds. This event has traditionally brought an outpouring of support from our community and we always look forward to it every year.
