Attendees are welcomed to operate a real fire hose, climb on the fire apparatus, try on firefighting gear and see the equipment carried on the trucks.
All are welcome to attend and experience how the Maplewood Fire Department operates on a daily basis. Demonstrations on vehicle extrication utilizing the “Jaws of Life” and Search & Rescue operations from a ladder truck will be conducted by fire department personnel. The Fire Safety Trailer from Saint Barnabas will be on hand for residents to learn about fire safety in the home. Children will have an opportunity to see a firefighter in full gear, climb on board the fire apparatus and view some of the tools and equipment used by firefighters.
