Delhi Fire Department Open House

In observance of National Fire Prevention Month, the Delhi Township Fire Department will host its annual open house on Sunday, October 15, 2017 from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. at the Neeb Road Fire Station, 697 Neeb Road.

In addition to providing the highest level of fire and emergency medical emergency response to the community, the Fire Department offers a wide range of programs and services that focus on fire and safety education.   Residents are invited to stop by the station for a fun, informative visit with fire personnel.  In addition to blood pressure checks and guided tours of the station and equipment, there will be hands-on activities to promote fire and safety awareness, including:

  • The University Hospital Air Care will land at Our Lady of Victory on the north sports fields (behind church) at 1:00 P.M. Once the aircraft lands, feel free to get an up close look and meet the flight crew! Arrive early to see it land!
  • Stop by for an opportunity to learn about the Department’s history while viewing the many artifacts on display, including the original fire pumper!
  • Kid’s Firefighter Challenge Course, for children of all ages who want to suit up and test their firefighter skills and agility (gear only available for kids up to 12 years old).
  • The Fire Safety House which teaches life-saving practices on how to safely exit a smoke filled building.
  • Canine demonstration with Fire Investigator Steve Claytor, and his canine Rudy.
  • Hamburgers, hot dogs and light refreshments will be provided while supplies last.

 

In addition, the Delhi Township Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), in collaboration with Matthew25: Ministries, will be collecting canned goods for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
