Andover Fire Department Invites Public to First Open House

Includes Touch-a-Truck event; October 15

By Shawna Otis

All are welcome to attend the Andover Fire Department’s first annual Open House and Touch-a-Truck event on Saturday, October 15, from 10 AM to 2 PM. Meet our firefighters and EMTs. The fire department will be open to the public, with lunch and snacks, goodies for the kids, games for all, giveaways, and demonstrations throughout the event.

Learn about fire safety and have a blast in our inflatable fire safety house (generously donated by Mike Prete). Smokey the Bear will even be making an appearance. 

On top of having our fire department and EMS vehicles, we will have the Andover Police Department, the Merrimack County Sheriff’s Department, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, and other cool trucks for everyone to see!

Since this year is our first annual open house as well as the 100th annual Fire Prevention Week, we decided to invite local resources to showcase their services. Representatives will be present from Crisis Center of Central New Hampshire, American Red Cross, Twin Rivers Food Bank, and others that Andover residents are able to access in times of need. 

It is sure to be a great time with our local heroes! Be sure to stop in and say hello.
