Kids of all ages can view (and climb aboard) the fire equipment on display and meet the men and women who always come to the rescue. Special guests include Smokey the Bear!
Participants include many of the local fire departments and rescue units. Visitors are encouraged meet the men and women who serve them. Kids will have the opportunity to climb aboard a fire engine, see how tall an aerial ladder extends, talk with firefighters and department personnel, and learn fire and life safety skills through fun activities.
