Salisbury Fire Department Open House

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- The Salisbury Fire Department will open up their fire station for an annual open house.

The City of Salisbury says Station 16 at 325 Cypress Street will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, August 15.

The open house is being held in recognition of the 143rd anniversary of the Salisbury Fire Department.

Fire Chief Richard Hoppes said this is a great way for Salisbury firefighters to connect with the community by giving people a chance to talk with firefighters, meet "Sparky the Fire Dog," get a tour of the station, free blood pressure checks and observe interactive events.

Kids can participate in fun activities like face painting, a moon bounce, practicing their aim with a fire hose and a dunking booth.

The City of Salisbury says every 30 minutes during the open house, there will be interactive events including a hazmat demonstration, as well as firefighters cutting through a roof  and performing a vehicle rescue.

Members of the Salisbury Fire Department will be available to answer any questions the public may have.
