Fire departments and firefighters from departments from the region converged on the Mariners Centre – and so did the public – on Saturday, Aug. 24 for an event focusing on firefighting that was billed as a family education and fun day.
The event, running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. included fire truck rides, interactive activities where children (and adults) could dose fires or knock tennis balls off a row of pylons with a fire hose, a dunking booth and a barbecue. Equipemnt from the various departments was on display for people to view. There were also photographics displays and displays on emergency equipment.
