Bring the entire family for the Boardman Township Fire Department’s annual Open House — Saturday, October 1 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Main Fire Station on Rte. 224.

There will be demonstrations, including a live fire burn and an extrication with the Jaws of Life. The Safety Trailer will be on hand so that children can learn what do to in case of a fire at home. Kids can also enjoy the gigantic Fire Truck Bounce-Around Slide, along with face painting and a chance to see a fire truck up-close. Helmets, stickers and coloring books will be given out.

For adults, flu shots will be administered by a Rite Aid pharmacist, and there will be certified car seat inspections by Akron Children’s Hospital.

Free hot dogs, chips and refreshments for all.
