Chief of Department Christopher Moskos announced that the department would once again host a holiday open house at the Strong Street Fire House Station No. 3 on West John Street on Dec. 2 from noon to 3 p.m.
Santa will be on hand to greet visitors. Once again this year, there will be fire engine rides for the children. You can take part in a home escape drill in the department’s fire safety smoke house. Emergency Medical personnel will be on hand to showcase their new squad and how they are providing an essential service to the community.
New members are welcome and will be trained and certified. The community’s population is getting older and new members are needed. You don’t have to be a firefighter to join the squad. Stop by and ask questions.
Inside, there will be displays and information on fire safety issues, including smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and generator safety.
Fire and rescue equipment will be on display, in addition to two separate demonstrations on vehicle extrication at 1 and 2 p.m.
Bring the whole family and learn about fire safety. The Hicksville School District is assisting by distributing flyers to all students to inform their families on the open house.
