On Saturday, October 11th, Flourtown Fire Company organized the inaugural Springfield Township Emergency Services Event. The event was scheduled to promote fire safety week and fire prevention month, which annually is in October.
Members of Flourtown Fire Company, Oreland Fire Company, Wyndmoor Hose Company, Springfield Ambulance, and the Springfield Township Police participated in the event.
While the weather didn’t exactly cooperate, the turnout from the community was outstanding! Children were able to meet and talk to our first responders, and learn how to keep themselves and their family safe!
All who attended enjoyed live demonstrations, light refreshments food, a smoke house for kids to practice their escape plan, as well as various other hands on activities.
Thanks to all who braved the weather and came out to enjoy this event, and a special thanks to the Flourtown Fire Company’s Fire Prevention Committee Chairman, Jon Walker for organizing such a special event.
