  This was a very successuful Community Day, we had, at least 300 people come enjoy the displays and demonstrations. The weather was great and there weren't any calls!! Last year, 9/12/2009, it drizzled and, just 9 minutes before start time, we got a major call!!

  There was food donated by Belfor USA Property Restoration and drinks by WAWA of Spring City, Store No 258, 3380 Schuykill Road.

  We had police from East Coventry and East Vincent attending. There was an ambulance from West End Fire Company. We had a Heliocopter from Sky FlightCare {Un-Offical web site} based at Brandywine Hospital. There was a nurse from Phoenixville Hospital Community Outreach doing blood pressure checks, etc. and handing out health related informational pamphlets.

  Attendees got to try on real fire gear, sit in fire trucks, check out an ambulance, look inside and touch and heliocopter, go through the Northern Chester County Fire Chiefs Association Safety Trailer, spray fire hoses, watch fire fighters put out a "real" fire. We had built two "buildings" side by side. They were both set on fire at the same time. Once they were "rolling" we put them out. One with plain water and one using our CAFS. The CAFS, or Compressed Air Foam System, allows the water to penetrate the wood and cloth more easily while also covering everything with a blanketing foam. This makes the fire go out faster!!

  As always "Sparky the Fire Dog" was a big hit with the kids!!

Many of these pictures have had their "Brightness" and "Contrast" adjusted to make it easier to see what is going on.

The size, maximum 400 pixels wide, and resolution has been changed on all of these pictures to speed loading and allow 2 side by side on a standard screen.
