Montgomery Locals, Oct. 10, 2018
This week is Fire Prevention Week and our local volunteer fire companies will be keeping busy with events.
The Clinton Township Volunteer Fire Company will be having their annual Open House on Thursday the 11th from 5-8 p.m. According to Chief Todd Winder, there will be a number of different events happening that evening at their station including fire extinguisher training. Anyone who has never been properly trained to use a fire extinguisher should come and take advantage of this wonderful learning opportunity. It may save your home, your life, and the lives of your family.
The Montgomery Volunteer Fire Department will also be having their annual Fall Festival and Pumpkin Roll this weekend. If you’ve never been to the Pumpkin Roll, it’s lots of fun! The sight and sound of hundreds of pumpkins rolling down one of Montgomery’s steepest hills is unforgettable.
Please come out to these events to both learn from and support our local volunteer fire fighters!
