There was plenty to see and do during the open house at the Skippack Fire Company on Bridge Road Thursday night. The annual event is a celebration of Fire Prevention Week and hundreds of township residents came out to learn a little about fire safety. The demonstrations included putting a fire out in a burning building as well as a simulated vehicle rescue. There were plenty of fire trucks on display and the Montgomery County Bomb Squad Robot made an appearence. The fire company also put three of its antique fire trucks on display. They were kept under cover inside the fire station and visitors at the open house could see just how much emergency vehicles have changed as they enjoyed refreshments with their neighbors.
