Governor's Fire Prevention Day at Dan Patch Park

Many youth representing several Fire Explorer posts from around the state square off in a variety of competitions – gear donning, ladder raising, spinal immobilization and others – capped off at 5 p.m. with an awards ceremony. Explorers are young men and women who work with adult mentors throughout the year to learn all the skills necessary for a firm understanding of a firefighter’s job. Skits and CPR and AED demonstrations also take place throughout the day on the Dan Patch Park stage. A “State of Fire Prevention Address” from fire service dignitaries will be presented on stage at 11:30 a.m. Presented by the Governor's Council on Fire Prevention and Control.
