Oswego Fire Department Open House – Safety Day Set October 3

OSWEGO – The Oswego Fire Department Open House / Safety Day will be held October 3 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the department headquarters, on East Cayuga Street.

This popular annual event brings awareness to Fire Prevention Week, which begins October 4.

The public is encouraged to visit the fire station for some family fun, while learning how to stay safe.

Oswego firefighters will be on hand to talk with the public and conduct station tours, apparatus tours, and to have some fun with the kids.

Many other local public safety agencies will be at the station supporting the event such as the Oswego Police Department, the Oswego County Sheriff’s Department, the New York State Police, the US Coast Guard, SUNY Oswego Public Safety, the Oswego County Fire Coordinator’s Office, and the Oswego County Traffic Safety Council.

Lowe’s will be at the event and will have representatives on hand with their “Make & Take crafts, and the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau will be at the station as well.

Kids will be able to try on firefighting gear, get their faces painted, spray water from a real fire hose, and have some fun playing games and learning about safety.

Any community organizations that would like to attend the event and distribute safety information can contact Lt. Paul Conzone at (315) 343-2161.
