CANTON — Chief Charles Doody is pleased to announce that the Canton Fire Department will be hosting its upcoming annual open house as part of their programming for National Fire Prevention Week.
Fire Prevention Week is coming up on Oct. 6-12. This year’s theme, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” is aimed at educating everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.
Saturday, Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Canton Fire Department Headquarters, 99 Revere St.
Families and residents are invited to attend the free event where they can meet some of Canton’s firefighters and learn important fire safety tips.
Participants will be shown a live burn and sprinkler system demonstration and a hydraulic extrication tool demonstration.
There will be tours of the fire station and plenty of activities for kids including a bouncy slide, climbing through the fire trucks and taking turns spraying a hose.
Adults and children will have the opportunity to view the department’s fire trucks and the equipment that firefighters use everyday.
In addition, people over age 9 can get a free flu shot administered by the Canton Board of Health.
Food and refreshments will be served.
