Fire safety and prevention will be the focus when Lawrence Township’s three volunteer fire companies host members of the community on Wednesday, Oct. 24.
Township residents are invited to visit the Lawrenceville Volunteer Fire Co. firehouse on Philips Avenue between 5 and 8 p.m. on Oct. 24 for the annual “Fire Prevention Open House” to learn how to better protect themselves and their loved ones.
“Every year we take great pride in educating parents, kids, residents and business members about fire safety and prevention. It could be the most educational hour that your family has about fire safety," Lawrenceville Fire Chief Gary Wasko said.
Firefighters from Lawrenceville, joined by crews from the Lawrence Road and Slackwood volunteer fire companies, will stress the importance of being proactive to emergency situations verses being reactive.
There will be static displays of firefighting equipment, fire safety trailer, Flashy the fire dog, fire prevention materials and other handouts, and live exercises.
For more information or questions, please call the Lawrenceville firehouse at (609) 896-0972.
