The annual Ocean City Fire Department Open House will be held 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, at Fire Department headquarters, 550 Asbury Ave.
The evening includes informative and fun activities for children. There will be valuable life-saving exercises. A miniature house will be set up to teach children how to crawl low through a smoke-filled building. They will also be instructed on how to “stop, drop and roll” in case their clothing catches fire.
Youngsters will also have the opportunity to use a fire hose and tour the fire trucks. Bring a camera and take photos of your children posing by the engines. There will be face-painting, a coloring contest and a Jaws of Life demonstration. City Police will also participate in the program.
The event includes complimentary hotdogs and pretzels.
The Open House is sponsored the Fire Department and Local 27 of the FMBA.
