On Monday, June 25 the Bowmansville Volunteer Fire Association (BVFA) hosted a Fire Prevention Open House at its Station #2 on Seitz Avenue.
Dozens of families participated in the event, which offered demonstrations and hands on activities for both children and adults to participate in. Lancaster residents were able to view apparatus from BVFA, Lancaster Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the Lancaster Volunteer Ambulance Corps (LVAC), a piece of steel recovered from the World Trade Center, and also partake in blood pressure screenings and raffles.
Additionally, many enjoyed sharing hotdogs, beverages and ice cream with their friends and families.
BVFA is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and they will be holding a Field Days Event Friday and Saturday, Aug. 17 and 18 at Station #1. For more details, visit www.bvfa.com.
