Saturday, October 15, 2011 marked yet another first for Brentwood Fire and Rescue. The department held its first annual Public Safety Day which was made a success due to a great turnout from the community. Both the Brentwood Fire and Police Departments participated, as well as Williamson County EMS.
In case you missed it, now is your chance to catch up on some of the day’s activities. The city’s newest Engine and Ladder Truck were on display, as well as one of the original Fire Engines from when the department was founded in 1986. The Police had a patrol car and a D.A.R.E. vehicle on display, and EMS brought out an ambulance and their decontamination station for everyone to see. They also provided free CPR lessons.
Children were able to grab a fire hose and help firefighters extinguish mock flames on a roof before climbing a ladder to rescue stuffed pets stranded in a tree.
Members of BFR and Williamson EMS put on a live demonstration of vehicle extrication.
Sally the Fire Beagle helped everyone learn about Fire Safety.
Hydro the Fire Hydrant, seen here in front of BFR’s original pumper, was also a real crowd pleaser.
Another demonstration by BFR personnel showed the difference between a fire in a home with no fire sprinklers…
and one protected by sprinklers.
The Fire Safety House was present, helping children learn about Fire Safety in the Home.
In addition to the main event being held on Franklin RD, each of the City’s four Fire Stations were open for visits and station tours.
See you next year!
