2021 Fire Prevention Week
During this year's Fire Prevention Week, our Department was visited by the Oak Bluffs School’s Kindergarten classes who were eager to explore the Station and learn about public safety. Paramedic Luke Cote showed them our ambulances and explained the importance of dialing 911 only in emergency situations. Deputy Fire Chief Stephen Foster educated the students on fire safety, fire prevention, and how our apparatuses operate. A live demonstration of how firefighters don and doff their turnout gear was provided by Firefighter and EMT Shawn Trepanier. Each child also took turns using Engine 522’s hose to put out a mock fire with the help of Captain Kyle Gatchell.
