Children’s fire safety event at the Graham Historical Museum on October 9
The Graham Historical Museum Advisory Board and the Town of Graham Fire Department have teamed up for a fire safety event at the museum, 135 W. Elm St., Graham.
This free event for ages 5 to 12 will take place on Saturday, October 9 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., as part of Fire Prevention Week, which will take place from October 3 to 9.
The Graham Historical Museum was built in 1911 and served as Graham’s Fireman’s Building. Families can come and sit alongside the Graham Fire Department and the 1930 Seagrave Fire Truck for an interactive fire safety education while taking a peek into the past and present of the Graham Fire Department . There will be lessons on home fire safety, smoke detectors vs. carbon monoxide detectors, how to create an escape plan, when to call 911 and more. Participants can take a special photo with the fire truck and Charlie the fire station dog during their stay. Families will also benefit from a special tour of a fire engine from yesterday and today.
Places are limited and registration is compulsory for children participating in the program. Online registration is available until Friday, October 8, subject to availability. For the safety and care of each other, a face cover / mask is required for entry to the museum.
