Fire Department Events

Poster Contest / Firehouse Tours

Each year during Fire Prevention Month, the Borough of Fire Prevention and career firefighters spend many hours visiting the younger children in the schools and teach them about fire safety. There also is a poster contest for those children and winners are awarded prizes and the first place winners are given a ride to school on a Fire Truck. Also during this time Firehouse tours are given for school children so they can see our fire trucks and equipment up close.
