Fire department open house
is Oct. 12
Tour the fire station, check out the equipment and see a MedEvac helicopter up close at the Twinsburg Fire Department Open House Oct. 12 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at 10069 Ravenna Road.
Anyone 13 years and older can participate in a hands-on fire extinguisher demonstration, using the new fire simulator purchased with a grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, said Assistant Fire Chief Steve Bosso.
Visitors can check out fire trucks and other safety vehicles -- and even climb aboard to see the view from the driver's seat -- and meet mascot Sparky the Fire Dog and Twinsburg Police K9 Yasso and his partner, Officer Yamil Encarnacion.
Yasso and Encarnacion will also participate in a search and rescue demonstration.
There will be light refreshments, face painting, balloons and lots of safety information to take home.
