Sticking with tradition, the open house will focus on education, prevention and will also offer parents and children a hands-on look at life-saving measures.
“The purpose of National EMS Week is to bring together our residents and fire and medical personnel,” Capt. John Weiss said. “Willard Fire & Rescue is hosting an open house in hopes of educating our residents and visitors, as well as honor the dedication of those who provide life-saving services.”
The open house, which will take place at Willard Fire & Rescue, 425 Fort Ball Road, Willard is scheduled from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. May 18. Among many planned activities for visitors, firefighters will provide hands-only CPR demonstrations, tours of the fire station, ambulances and fire trucks, blood pressure screenings, FAST stroke education, life-saving equipment demonstrations and the Huron County Safe Communities Coalition fatal vision goggles.
Held in conjunction with EMS Week, May 19-25, the open house will offer family-friendly activities and light refreshments.
