Behind the Scenes for Fire Prevention Week

The Washington Township Fire Department took residents behind the scenes for virtual tours of our five fire stations during National Fire Prevention week, October 5-9.

Videos from a different fire station are now posted on YouTube and feature the distinctive apparatus and equipment located at each station. Virtual tours and live action videos run the gamut -- from climbing the 105-foot ladder truck at Station 41 to extinguishing a real fire at the training tower. “Even though we were not able to have traditional open houses this fall, we came up with some creative ways to engage and educate the community throughout Fire Prevention Week,” says Fire Chief Scott Kujawa. “We encourage families to participate by watching the videos together and to learn about home safety and fire prevention in this fun and entertaining way.”
