Due to the weather forecast, the Ocean City Fire Department Open House that had been scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 10 has been postponed. The new date for the event is Thursday, Oct. 17.

Updated information is as follows:

The Ocean City Fire Department and IAFF Local 4032 will hold their annual Open House at the station at 550 Asbury Avenue from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 17.

Everybody in the community is invited to this free event. It will feature a live burn demonstration, a “smoke house” where kids can safely learn to navigate a dark and smoky structure, tours of trucks, “stop-drop-and-roll,” hot dogs and pretzels.

The annual event coincides with national Fire Prevention Month and gives the community a chance to learn more about how the department works. Off-duty firefighters from the local firefighters’ union volunteer their time to produce the event.

For information, call (609) 525-9182.
