The Cazenovia Fire Department, in conjunction with the New Woodstock and Erieville fire departments, will host an open house from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Cazenovia firehouse, located at 121 Albany St.

During the event, there will be demonstrations of firefighting equipment, thermal imaging cameras, extrication equipment and high angle and water rescue teams, as well as emergency medical services.

The intent of the open house is to show the public the departments’ equipment and capabilities, both for firefighting and rescue-related emergencies. For those who may be interested in joining a fire department, it is an excellent opportunity to acquire information on the local organizations.

All volunteer fire departments are in great need of members, so this is a good chance to ask questions and see what the three stations have to offer their volunteers.

This year, those attending the open house will be eligible to sign up for free raffle prizes. The fire departments will be giving away multiple door prizes donated from local businesses.

As there will be a number of photo opportunities, those planning on attending are reminded to bring their cameras.

Parking will be available at Buyea’s, light refreshments will be served and all are welcome. For additional information, contact Second Assistant Chief Don Arnold at 391-5529.
