Youngsters can experience what it’s like to be a firefighter, trying on the protective gear and putting out simulated house fires with water hoses. They also will learn how to safely escape a smoke-filled room.
Firefighters will conduct a mock vehicle extrication at 11 a.m. At noon they will demonstrate the importance of sprinklers in a residential setting by igniting simulated residences. They also will conduct kitchen fire safety demos throughout the day, as well as fire extinguisher training. River the Rescue Dog will be make a special appearance.
