OCEAN CITY - Due to the weather forecast, the Ocean City Fire Department open house that had been scheduled for Oct. 10 has been postponed. The new date for the event is Oct. 17.
According to a release, the Ocean City Fire Department and IAFF Local 4032 will hold the annual open house at 550 Asbury Ave. from 5 to 8 p.m., Oct. 17.
The community is invited to this free event. It will feature a live burn demonstration, a “smokehouse” where children can safely learn to navigate a dark and smoky structure, tours of trucks, “stop-drop-and-roll,” hot dogs and pretzels.
