Arcanum Fire Prevention & Public Safety Day - October 3rd

The Arcanum Fire Department will be hosting its first annual Fire Prevention & Public Safety Day. The activities will take place at the Arcanum Fire Department which is located at 206 S Main Street Arcanum, Ohio.

Fire Prevention & Public Safety Day will feature dozens of activities. The day will begin with a parade at 11:30 AM which will begin on North Main Street and will end in front of the Arcanum Fire Department.

A memorial will be unveiled at 12:00 PM and the Fire Prevention and Public Safety Day activities will begin immediately following the ceremony.

The first activities to take place include fire truck rides for those kids who are interested in seeing what it is like to ride in a fire truck. A smoke trailer will also be on site to simulate what occurs during house fires. The Arcanum Rescue Squad and Arcanum Police Department will also be involved with demonstrations! The Arcanum Rescue Squad will also be taking free blood pressures during the early afternoon hours.

Later in the day games, including fire gear races, tug of war and bucket races, will take place. Careflight will also be landing and will give a demonstration showing off their helicopter!

Prizes will be given out all day to those children and kids in attendance. Prize registration will begin at 12:00 PM. Over $500.00 of merchandise and gift certificates have been donated by local and area businesses!
