Below is a slideshow of photos from the public safety event on Saturday. On Saturday, firefighters from Monticello, East Rivanna, Hollymead, Medic 16, and our own station participated in a public safety event to educate the community about fire safety. It was held in the Pantops Food Lion parking-lot from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Kids were able to go through a smoke house to learn about fire-safety in the home, along with learning how to crawl out of a window. The final demonstration consisted of a burn demonstration consisting of two rooms. One was equipped with a residential sprinkler system, the other was not. Check out some of the pictures to see just how effective these systems can be!
