Fire Chief Robert Venturella enthusiastically said, “This event builds upon our 2005 Open House experience. A number of new opportunities have been built into the schedule including a hands-on fire extinguisher demonstration. One typically doesn’t operate a fire extinguisher, so it is a good occasion to become acquainted with an extinguisher’s operation before an actual emergency.”
“The Open House will be truly unique and enjoyable for family members of all ages and it is designed to be educational and entertaining,” Venturella continued. “Each of the members of the volunteer fire department are contributing a significant amount of effort to ensure success of the open house. There will be so many activities at the event that a family can be actively engaged for an entire afternoon.”
Venturella urged Clark residents “to come out and meet your volunteer fire department and members who are also your neighbors.” The chief also noted that this year’s open house will feature free hot dogs, popcorn, and soda and children’s games and entertainment.
The open house event will include an overview of engine, rescue, and truck company operations, a hands-on fire safety trailer, a thermal imaging camera station and demonstration, hands-on fire extinguisher education and demonstrations, automobile/vehicle occupant extrication demonstrations, electric safety education and demonstrations, family photo time with fire vehicles and turn-out gear, and children’s fun and games, fire safety videos and movies, contests and prizes, and fun for all ages.
