Open House at the Fire Hall

Press Release
Open House at the Fire Hall

OVFD will hold an open house on October 8, to observe Fire Prevention Week. 

The Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department will also visit the school during this week to talk with the students about fire prevention.

This year’s topic is maintaining an escape plan with two ways out, as well as the importance of fire prevention. 

To develop a plan the following points should be considered:

  • Draw a map of your house
  • Find two ways out of each room
  • Make sure you can use all of your ways out
  • Make sure your doors and windows are not blocked
  • Choose an outside meeting place in front of your house
  • Go over your plan with everyone in your home
  • Have a plan to assist anyone who needs help getting out
  • Test your smoke alarms to be sure they are working

There will be a tour of the station and a chance to see the trucks with the equipment they carry.  Fire prevention materials, address sign information, and Vial of Life information will be available.  The kids will be able to handle a fire hose and spray some water.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, October 8, 2:00 – 4:00pm.
