TRICK-OR-TREATERS AND FAMILIES INVITED TO FULTON FIRE DEPARTMENT OCT. 31 FOR OPEN HOUSE, TREATS
The Fulton Fire Department will open its doors on Halloween evening, Oct. 31 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. to hand out special Halloween treats to children and provide the community with an opportunity to tour the fire station, see the equipment, and continue to learn about fire safety and prevention through talking with firefighters.
Fulton Fire Chief Jeremy Martin said opening the firehouse is a great opportunity for Fulton residents to see the fire house, the firefighters, and take some ownership in services.
"Throughout the evening, there will be tours of the building, time to explore the apparatus, and access to speak with firefighters," he said.
During the open house, at 6:15 p.m. the Fulton Fire Department will have a special time to bring awareness to the the community regarding human trafficking, by taking part in a nation wide initiative, the Red Sand Project, a process which provides a visual impact signifying how often, victims "fall through the cracks." The public is also invited to view the presentation.
“No one should fall through the cracks,” Chief Martin said, adding if anyone is a victim or needs to report a suspected human trafficking case, they should use the National Human Trafficking Hotline by calling 1-888-373-7888.
