FROM THE CCMD FIRE DEPARTMENT:
SAVE THE DATE!
TO COMMEMORATE FIRE SAFETY WEEK, I am very happy to announce that the third annual Fire Safety Day is almost here! In case you missed the signs, this year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 21st. The official start time is 10:00 am and will go until 2:00 PM. However, this year starting at 9:00 am we will offer a free Yoga session at the Fire Station with Karin Winter. Yoga is immediately followed by a Fire Engine fun run/walk lead by your Fire Chief. This will lead into a fun filled day of Fire Safety Events and information, a Hot Dog lunch, vehicle extrication demonstrations, and a Memorial Star Helicopter landing! With this year’s event falling closer to Halloween we are working on a pumpkin give-a-way for the kids. All this will be taking place with the background sounds and music of a local DJ. Kona Ice will also have snow cones for sale. Please save the Date and bring your family and friends out to enjoy your community event!
