The Hillsborough Fire Department is pleased to invite you to attend our Open House that will take place on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, beginning at 6:30pm at the Fire Hall, located at 2789 Main Street. Stop in for a free BBQ and cake. Have a look at some of the specialized firefighting equipment, pick up the latest Fire Prevention messages, ask us questions and watch some of the firefighters play ‘Jaws of Life Jenga’ – a skill-building exercise that teaches precision and control with this very powerful tool. The popular ‘Parade of Trucks and Lights’ will also take place that evening, so be sure to bring the kids along. Sparky the Fire Dog will also be on hand to greet kids of all ages and pose for photos.
Fire Prevention Week, October 9 to 15, turns 100 years old this October, marking a momentous milestone for the annual campaign. This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign theme is “Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape.”
