Fire Safety Expo & Open House

October 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

St. Thomas Volunteer Fire & Rescue will be open on October 16 from 10 am to 3pm. We will have outdoor displays and demonstrations. EMT’s will display the ambulance and explain what is required to stock the ambulance and the state rules for having ambulance services.

First responders will tear down a wrecked vehicle with a jaws of life type tool at noon. Our staff will display the engines and people may sit inside an engine for photos.

The medical helicopter will be on display for a couple hours. Inside, we will have dozens of information booths with free handouts on every topic of fire safety, kitchen and food safety, how to burn safely, escape planning and much more. the State Police, Sheriff and Coroners offices will be on hand. We will register St Thomas residents for free address signs for their properties so that rescue responders can find you when you call for them. We have some free safety equipment (smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers) to give to those who need one. Lunch will be provided free of charge. Kids can take photos in a stand up fire outfit display. Adults can try on a full fire outfit. Speakers will describe their experiences as first responders. Volunteers will share stories of their work with the Company.

We recognize that two other events are being held that day so we need to remind local residents to stop by on their way to or from Apple FestivalĀ and/or Fulton Fall Fest.
