SHOUT OUT: Children and adults got to learn how firefighters do their jobs during an annual open house last night hosted by the Lodi Fire Department and Fire Prevention Bureau at the Hose Company 2 firehouse on Kennedy Drive.
The demonstrations included a crawl space with simulated smoke to instruct people how to evacuate their home in a fire.
Children and their parents also received plastic helmets, coloring books and various pamphlets about fire prevention and safety.
Also attending were:
The Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification, demonstrating how fingerprints from a crime scene are processed;
Various units of the Bergen County Police Department: the Motorcycle Unit, K-9 Unit, CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) and CART (County Animal Response Team), headed by Sgt Gidget Petry;
The Bergen County Office of Emergency Management.
Hackensack University Medical Center Air Med 1, which landed at Kennedy Field across from the firehouse and was open for attendees to look at the equipment and briefly sit inside the back.
