Eastham fire holding fire safety open house on Saturday

EASTHAM –  The Eastham Fire Department welcomes local families to a free Open House on Saturday, October 22nd, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The open house, sponsored by Papa Gino’s, is aimed at teaching families fire safety and prevention practices. The open house will be held at the Eastham Fire Department Headquarters, 2520 State Highway in Eastham.

This open house commemorates National Fire Safety Month (October). Participants will receive safety tips such as “stop, drop and roll”, learn how to plan escape routes and how to crawl safely through a smoke-filled room. In addition, Papa Gino’s, the Dedham, Mass.-based pizza chain, will provide free pizza and children’s fire safety coloring sheets at the open house. “This even allows us to reach out to the community and arm local families with fire safety tips and procedures,” said Eastham Fire Chief Kent Farrenkopf. “Our open house allows families to get together and better prepares them to react if a fire does start.” Papa Gino’s is celebrating its 22nd anniversary of sponsoring fire safety open houses throughout New England to encourage families to learn about fire safety. For the past 22 years, Papa Gino’s has sponsored open houses throughout New England, helping to educate more than 2 million people about fire prevention and safety. During the month of October, Papa Gino’s will provide customers with fire prevention coloring sheets and certificates for kids. Fire department open houses are being hosted throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island in October.
