The rain did not stop a hopeful crowd from enjoying the fun of the Fairhaven Fire Department’s annual open house on Sunday, 10/8, at the Fairhaven Fire Station. Young’uns ran around in the rain, climbed into fire trucks, and enjoyed free pizza and drinks inside while the adults waited for the rain to subside.
Eventually, a little after 2 p.m., the demonstrations began, with the Jaws of Life tearing apart an old Buick, and the burning of a small building.
Through it all, children were able to aim the fire hose at targets, bounce in the bounce house, and explore the safety trailer for tips on how to get out of a burning room.
The fire extinguisher demonstration was nixed, though, due to the late hour.
