The Pembroke Volunteer Fire Department will host its third annual Family Fire Safety Day Saturday as part of National Fire Safety Month.
Assistant Chief Nick Belair says the event will take place starting at 2 p.m. at the fire department’s location on Maple Street, and people will be able to learn about the department and some tips to stay fire safe.
He says the day will be filled with activities, including demonstrations, tours of trucks, mazes, a safety house and more.
Belair says it’s all about keeping people safe and the department will be teaming up with the local Red Cross to help install or replace smoke detectors in homes in the coming weeks.
In 2017, the Pembroke Volunteer Fire Department responded to five structure fires, six vehicle fires and 10 outdoor fires, such as field fires and provided mutual aid to nine structure fires. So far in 2018, they’ve three vehicle, three structure and nine mutual aid structure fires.
