SMFD Fire Prevention and Open House Held
By Eugenia Moskowitz
The Salisbury Mills Fire Department’s annual open house and fire prevention day was held on Oct. 6. Children learned about fire prevention via educational tools including a walk-through mobile smoke house, fire- and water-rescue demonstrations, and even a seatbelt simulator machine provided by the NY State Police. They also got to walk inside a Blooming Grove ambulance and check out the fire trucks, police cars, and other specialized emergency response vehicles.
