Residents can learn about fire prevention and safety tips and enjoy free pizza when the Fire Department holds a free open house on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Water Street Fire Station.
October is National Fire Prevention Month and Papa Gino’s restaurants are teaming up with local fire departments, including Haverhill’s, to help educate the community on fire safety and prevention. During the open house, firefighters will demonstrate how to “stop, drop and roll,” how to plan an escape route, and how to crawl to safety through a smoke-filled room. Firefighters will also give cooking safety and fire prevention tips, and show off Sparky the fire safety mascot.
Papa Gino’s on River Street will provide free pizza and children’s fire safety coloring sheets. Fire safety open houses are held to educate the community and help better prepare families in the event of a fire. More information is available from Fire Inspector Steven Trocki at 978-373-8460.
