Fire Department Hosts Fire Awareness Day

NMFD brings attention to fire safety and prevention at Fire Awareness Day.

Postponed due to poor weather last week, the day was picture perfect Sunday for New Milford Fire Department's annual Fire Awareness Day.

Kids got the opportunity to ride in a fire truck, go through a smoke house and go up in the bucket of the ladder truck. There were demonstrations on how to properly use a fire extinguisher and how to stop, drop and roll in the event of a fire.

Indeed. It was a great event. It was fun and educational.

Great job by the volunteers of the NMFD. We were also able to add 20 new residents to the Adopt a Fire Hydrant program. If you are interested please call the boro and ask for the Fire Marshall to get an application.
