Open House 2015

by DC Gabe Balsamo in Company Events

DSC_6086On behalf of the North Madison Volunteer Fire Company, we would like to thank all the neighbors and friends who attended our open house.  The weather was perfect and the turnout was excellent. The day was filled with many interesting activities for both adults and children including the midnight alarm.  Children were able to experience a mock alarm, dress in turnout gear and race to the truck.  The gear might have been a little big for some of our future responders, but all in all, a fun time.  Another popular event was handling hose lines and knocking down flames on a demo house.
Our junior firefighters gave talks on fire safety at home and what to do in an emergency.  Following the presentation, participants got a chance to experience the room filling with smoke, finding their way out of a trailer and finishing with a stop, drop and roll exercise. A special thanks goes to the Branford Fire Department for loaning us their smoke house trailer. All trucks were on display and residents had the opportunity to view the equipment that is used to support responders’ efforts.  The final event was an actual mock bedroom fire. Residents watched as a fire progressed in a confined room and witnessed first hand how firefighters respond and extinguish a fire.

We are very grateful for the support of our community and will continue to honor our commitment to “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”.
