Need a new bike helmet? Or maybe you'd like to see what it's like to be a firefighter?
You can have both as well as play fun games and get free Patch swag at the annual Plymouth Fire Department Open House noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, at Fire Station No. 3 on Dunkirk Lane.
“The open house is a great opportunity to have fun together as a family and learn about safety at the same time. We hope that people will spend the afternoon with us,” said Plymouth Fire Chief Rick Kline.
Families will have a chance to experience the world of emergency service providers through demonstrations, displays and hands-on activities. Attendees can:
- Buy a new bike helmet. Closeout prices range from $5-15.
- Try the Fire Department’s thermal imaging cameras, a life saving technology used in search and rescue operations
- Shoot water from a fire hose
- See North Memorial’s Aircare Helicopter
- Meet firefighters, paramedics, and emergency service providers
Pumpkins are available this year. Kids who bring in a drawing of their home fire escape plan, a fire safety poster or a non-perishable food item can enter a drawing to win a fire truck ride to Cold Stone Creamery to enjoy complimentary ice cream treats with their family.
