First Annual Open House

On February 23, 2013 the Putnam Fire Department, East Putnam Fire Department, and Putnam EMS held a joint Open House at the Putnam Fire Department headquarters.

The event included a number of activities that were very entertaining and educational. This was much more than a display of our equipment, it was a chance for the kids to have some fun while the adults obtained information and products they may use to help keep their homes safe.

Most importantly, our local emergency personnel and citizens, had the chance to get to know each other better than would normally occur when we meet in an emergency situation.

We are excited that we were able to give away well over 200 free smoke detectors as well as fire extinguishers, escape ladders and other safety equipment.

Many of the visitors who attended the event shared their appreciation for what we do, and likewise, we appreciate the time people took to come visit us at our house. We hope everyone left the event well informed on fire safety and an understanding of how highly we value the safety of everyone in our community.

The event was also visited by a variety of media outlets including press, radio, and network television crews.
