The Rochester Public Library Children’s Room, in collaboration with the Rochester Fire Department, is pleased to announce an upcoming Fire Prevention Awareness event on October 14, 2023, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am at the Rochester Public Library, 65 South Main Street.
The Rochester Fire Department will be stationed in the library parking lot, showcasing their firetruck and a variety of emergency equipment. Families attending the event will have the opportunity to explore multiple fire apparatus while gaining invaluable insights into fire safety.
A StoryWalk® presentation of Plan and Prepare! by Charles Ghigna will be displayed on the library’s lawn, combining the joys of reading with essential safety information.
