This past weekend was the end of National Fire Prevention Week, and it went out with a bang. The best overall open house we attended this year was Bloomfield Twp. They not only had the fire department open house, but every department for the township participated.
The fire department lit a pan on fire on the stove to simulate a grease fire and show the proper way to put it out and what happens if something goes wrong. They also did an extrication demo, had tons of information and things for kids to do. As usual the trucks were on display and they even brought in a UofM Survival Flight helicopter.
The department of public works had 1 vehicle of everything they use on display for kids to check out, had some games for kids to do and even gave rides in a dump truck.
The police department had several vehicles on display including their brand new Ford Interceptor SUV and their BMW motorcycles. They did a gun range demonstration, had a canine unit available, and even a drunk goggles simulator.
Other township departments were also on hand with flyers and to answer questions you may have. This was hands down the best open house for families to enjoy over the past week.
