Ocean City Fire Department Open House Rescheduled to Friday
|Date:||October 9, 2018|
The Ocean City Fire Department and IAFF Local 4032 will hold their annual Open House at the station at 550 Asbury Avenue from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12. The event had originally been scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 11, but it was moved due to the weather forecast.
Everybody in the community is invited to this free event. It will feature a live burn demonstration, a “smoke house” where kids can safely learn to navigate a dark and smoky structure, tours of trucks, a helicopter landing, a “Jaws of Life” demonstration, free hot dogs, pretzels and more.
The annual event coincides with national Fire Prevention Month and gives the community a chance to learn more about how the department works. Off-duty firefighters from the local firefighters’ union volunteer their time to produce the event. For information, call (609) 525-9182.
