Join the Burtonsville Volunteer Fire Department for our annual Open House!
October 21, 2023 12-4pm
13900 Old Columbia Pike
Silver Spring, MD 20904
Free fun and safety education activities for the whole family!
BVFD will open its doors (and trucks!) to the community on Saturday, October 21, 2023 from 12 noon – 4 pm at 13900 Old Columbia Pike, Silver Spring, MD 20904.
Join us to participate in the kids’ firefighter skills obstacle course, a fire house scavenger hunt, free blood pressure checks, a fire-themed moon bounce, a 911 call simulator, station tours, a photo and video selfie station, face painting, ambulance tours, the highly popular vehicle extrication demonstration, Food Trucks, coloring pages and educational activities for kids, the Fire Safety House, and climb through all of our fire and rescue trucks!
Come ask questions of our volunteers about trucks and equipment. Learn about smoke detectors, calling 911, proper car seat installation and laws, bike and pedestrian safety, what it’s like to be a firefighter or EMT, how to make a fire escape plan for your family, Christmas tree safety, and why BVFD doesn’t have a fire pole!
Bring a camera, because there will be plenty of “Kodak moments” – including a visit from Marshall the Fire Dog! Montgomery County Police will participate in games and activities with families.
And don’t leave without a free plastic fire helmet, tote bag and other useful items.
FREE FAMILY FUN!
