    The Stratford Fire Department is proud to announce it’s annual Open House on October 22, 2011 from 9 A.M. until 2 P.M. We invite you and your family to join us at Stratford Fire Headquarters, 2750 Main St and spend the day learning about your Stratford Fire Department as well as residential fire safety. The day will begin with a pancake breakfast scheduled from 9 A.M. until 11 A.M. The cost is $5. All proceeds benefit the Stratford Professional Firefighter’s Burn Foundation, a charity devoted to assisting burn victims through many programs including a summer camp for pediatric burn victims and the construction of a new burn suite in Bridgeport Hospital. Exciting demonstrations are scheduled throughout the day, including 2 live burn demonstrations and 2 vehicle extrication evolutions. The live burns incorporate a mock up of a typical residential room and will highlight the importance of working smoke detectors in your home and also how residential fires progress rapidly from small to deadly in a matter of minutes. After viewing the burns, we hope you’ll recognize the importance of “Getting out and Staying out!” The times of the evolutions are scheduled for 11 A.M. and 1:30 P.M. Two vehicle extrications are also scheduled. These will demonstrate how the SFD uses hydraulic cutting and spreading tools (commonly referred to as the “Jaws of Life”), as well as power and hand tools, to access and safely remove critical patients trapped in heavily damaged motor vehicles. Demonstrations are scheduled at 10 A.M. and 12:30 P.M. A smoke trailer prop will also be on scene. Firefighters will demonstrate and give the opportunity to your children to practice the proper way to exit their home in the event of a fire. The smoke trailer is a mock up of a typical home and provides a valuable learning experience for your children. While attending our open house we hope you’ll also take advantage of a tour of the firehouse and trucks and learn about what a typical day is like for at the Stratford Fire Department.
