By East Brandywine Fire Company
October 20, 2017

On Wednesday evening October 18th, East Brandywine Fire Company volunteers opened their doors to the Community to host their Annual Fire Prevention Open House. The attendance was the largest on record with almost 1,300 residents turning out to support the event.

Each year our committed team of volunteers work hard to improve the evening to make it as fun and informative for the kids as possible. This year the addition of the smoke tunnel, the roof prop and fire attack demonstration, as well as having our local business partners present was a home run!

Assistant Chief Vince D'Amico who is one of the organizers said "one of the reasons our Open House is so successful is the number of different activities we have to engage the kids". Some of the events the kids participated in included a dummy drag, ATV rides, and an opportunity to extinguish a simulated house fire.

As always Freddie and Sparky were a hit sharing important life-saving messages during the Freddie / Sparky Show.

The evening ended with live demonstrations which were held in our training complex. Attendees watched firefighters force doors, cut holes in roofs, and advance hose-lines through a smoke filled structure to rescue a victim.

The Officers and Members of East Brandywine Fire Company would like to thank the Chester County Department of Emergency Service and the Chester County HazMat Team for attending the event and sharing valuable information.

Also, special thanks to Hopewell Road Pharmacy and Bonds Eye Care for being great partners.

Lastly, thank-you to the West Whiteland Fire Company and Thorndale Fire Company for the use of their light towers.
