Fun at the fire hall

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

The Car­bon­ear Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment staged a very suc­cess­ful open house on Wed­nes­day, Oct. 6. Or­ga­niz­ers say some 400 chil­dren from the area vis­ited the hall and re­ceived loot bags, hot­dogs, rides on the truck and much more. The event was part of Fire Pre­ven­tion Week ac­tiv­i­ties, which con­cluded with the depart­ment’s an­nual fire­men’s ball on Satur­day night. This year’s theme was “ Smoke alarms, a sound you can live with.”

Sparky the Fire Dog also made an ap­pear­ance, to the de­light of the chil­dren like Au­tumn Lam­bert. The big fire trucks were an at­trac­tion for the chil­dren. Here, Luke and Ben Parker (front, left to right) and vol­un­teers Danielle Thomas and Hi­lary Craw­ford (back) smile from the cab of the fire truck.
