Plymouth Fire Department Annual October Open House
Plymouth Fire Department hosts an annual open house at Fire Station III, 3300 Dunkirk Ln., each October. The open house is a opportunity to have fun together as a family and learn about safety at the same time. Attendees get a chance to experience the world of firefighters, police officers and paramedics through demonstrations, displays and hands-on activities.
Kids who bring in a drawing of a home fire escape plan or a homemade fire safety poster can trade it for a free pumpkin, harvest permitting. Families may also exchange a non-perishable food item for a free pumpkin. Donations go to Interfaith Outreach and People Responding in Social Ministry (PRISM). For more information, call 763-509-5198.
