When I was little, my grandparents lived in Framingham Center, and their house and property abutted the Framingham Fire Department. Every time we visited my grandparents, we also visited the firemen! I remember they were always so nice to us, letting us try on the turnout gear, climb on the firetrucks and even slide down the pole!

This Saturday, October 3rd, the Southwest Harbor Fire Department invites you to a open house from 10 AM to 2 PM. There will be demonstrations, refreshments, and you'll be able to check out the firemen in their turnout gear and the firetrucks!

The Southwest Harbor Fire Station is located at 250 Main Street in Southwest Harbor.
