Fire Department Open House Thursday, Hero Walk Sunday
The Annual Ocean City Fire Department OPEN HOUSE is a fine family event. Very Kid friendly. It will be held this Thursday, Oct. 11th at Fire Department Headquarters,
The evening will be informative and fun. There will be valuable life saving exercises. A miniature house will be set up to teach children how to crawl low through a smoke filled building. They will also be instructed on how to “stop, drop and roll” in case their clothing catches fire.
Youngsters will also have the opportunity to squirt a fire hose and tour the fire trucks. Bring a camera and take photos of your children posing by the engines. There will be face painting, a coloring contest and a Jaws of Life demonstration. City Police will also participate in the program.
All this excitement should activate the appetites of visitors. Our friendly fire fighters will respond with plenty of hotdogs and pretzels.
REMINDER: Make sure your children’s Halloween costumes are fire proof and provide good visibility. Always accompany your children during Trick or Treating.
