Calling all kids to bring your parents to college – FAU, that is – on Saturday, February 23 for the Hottest Fire Rescue Expo in Boca Raton’s history! Plans for this year’s FAMILY EXPO include action-filled exhibits for children and adults to enjoy, such as a vehicle extrication demonstration and a live fire demonstration. Of particular interest should be the Side-by-Side Fire Sprinkler exhibit, which profoundly illustrates the value of fire sprinklers in the home. The City’s Fire Rescue Services Department’s state-of-the art fire engines, medical units and even the 1926 vintage engine, Old Betsy, will be on display.
Fun-filled activities for the kids include a bounce house slide, face painting, and competitions for hose rolling and squirting water; and everyone can munch on hot dogs, popcorn, and other refreshments. A number of other City departments will be on site to provide interesting information regarding City services. This year Fire Rescue is partnering with the Police Department to provide Child Passenger Chair Safety Checks and Installation. Folks from Boca Raton Regional Hospital and Red Cross will offer blood pressure screening and health evaluations as well as lessons on safety.
Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services is looking forward to sharing their mission with the community. Come out to see what Fire Rescue does and meet your local Firefighters at this free event!
