Fire Prevention Open House and Coat Drive

What a great turnout for return of our Fire Prevention Open House and Coat Drive.

During the open house the children were able to perform hands on activities which included:
• Shooting water at the ATTACK fire panel which is used by firefighters during their training.
• Learned how to aim a hose to move a ball up a rope.
• Practiced how to place a 911 call in case of an emergency.
• Used the door prop to learn how firefighters open doors that are locked.

Also in attendance was Fire Investigator Officer Moger and his K9 partner Peyton from the Rockland County Sheriff’s Office. Officer Moger and partner Peyton demonstrated to the group how Peyton reacts when he senses something that may be flammable.

After participating in all the hands-on activities the children still found time to enjoy the fire trucks.

Carolyn's Elves and the OVFD collected over 200 coats. That's 200 gifts of warmth that people in the county will receive this Winter thanks to the tremendous and generous support from our community

We look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
