Fire Department Holding Open House for All Local Residents


There will be a special event this weekend for anyone who would like to get a better look into the world of firefighting.


The Burlington Fire Department is inviting local families to a free Open House on Saturday, October 14th from 10 a.m to 1 p.m.  The open house, sponsored by Papa Gino’s, is aimed at teaching families fire safety and prevention practices.  The Burlington Fire Department Open House will be held at 21 Center Street.


This open house commemorates National Fire Safety Month (October), a release states.


Participants will receive safety tips such as “stop, drop and roll”, learn how to plan escape routes and how to crawl safely through a smoke-filled room.  In addition, Papa Gino’s will provide free pizza and children’s fire safety coloring sheets at the open house.


“This event allows us to reach out to the community and arm local families with fire safety tips and procedures,” said Chief Steve Yetman.  “Our open house allows families to get together and better prepares them to react if a fire does start.”


Papa Gino’s is celebrating its 23rd anniversary of sponsoring fire safety open houses throughout New England to encourage families to learn about fire safety, the release states.  


“For the past 23 years, Papa Gino’s has sponsored open houses throughout New England, helping to educate more than 2 million people about fire prevention and safety,” the fire department states. “During the month of October, Papa Gino’s will also provide guests with fire prevention themed coloring sheets and a limited amount of certificates for kids, while supplies lasts.  Fire department open houses are being hosted throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island in October.”
