Fire Safety Day at the Main Fire Station – Saturday, October 11

Fire Station tours…live burn and extrication demonstrations…fire extinguisher training…free helmets, stickers and coloring books for the kids…and more — all will be part of the Boardman Township Fire Department’s Fire Safety Day, to be held Saturday, October 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Main Fire Station, 136 Boardman-Poland Road across from the Southern Park Mall.

This family-friendly event is a great opportunity for kids and parents alike to learn all about fire safety while getting an up-close look at a fire truck and related equipment. A featured event will be a live burn demonstration in a free-standing “burn building” structure, which is designed to show how rapidly a fire can spread once ignited. Firefighters will also demonstrate the latest “jaws of life” equipment used to extract motorists who are trapped in cars.

There will be a “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” T-shirt fundraiser, and refreshments will be available.
