Be aware, take simple steps, and stay safe!

The Bushkill, Marshalls Creek, and Shawnee Volunteer Fire Companies and Acme Hose Company are teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®)—the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years—to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”™ The campaign works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

The community is invited to join us Tuesday, October 8 from 6:30-9 PM at J. T. Lambert Intermediate School, 2000 Milford Rd, East Stroudsburg, PA for informative, family-friendly activities and displays. Meet your local volunteer firefighters who serve the community in the case of fire, accidents, natural disasters, etc. and get to know what it's like to be a volunteer firefighter in the Poconos.
