Fire Prevention Week Highlighted at Skippack Fire Co.
The Annual event is a celebration of fire prevention week. Despite the weather, hundreds of Township residents came out to learn about fire safety. The demonstrations included putting out a fire in a building as well as a simulated vehicle rescue. Chief Hayden Marriot says, events like this help the fire company recruit new members.
“We have applications for anyone who would like to be a volunteer. We always need people to in a variety of different ways.”
Other highlights of the open house were the canine search and rescue dogs, brought by the Volunteer Medical Service Corps of Lansdale.
