Firefighters Museum offers safety day Oct. 2Written by Kristen Criswell | | email@example.com
Kicking off Fire Prevention Week, the Toledo Firefighters Museum will host an afternoon of activities focused on fire safety.
“It’s a good thing for kids and family because we can teach them what to do in case of a fire,” said Bob Wuest, vice president of the museum. “We can expose them to the problems of fire.”
The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 2 and is free to the public. The Toledo Fire Fighters Museum is located at 918 Sylvania Ave.
The event will feature demonstrations in the smoke room—teaching children to get low and out of smoke—as well as films shown throughout the day. In addition, fire equipment, rigs and ladders will be on display for children to explore and ask questions about, Wuest said.
Fingerprinting by the Toledo Police Department will be available and free smoke detectors will be given out.
