The Germantown Volunteer Fire Department Open House Has Been Postponed Until October 28th

Update: This event has been postponed due to weather. The new date will be Saturday, October 28th from 12pm-3pm.

The Germantown Volunteer Fire Department and Montgomery County Police Department District 5 will be holding a joint event on Saturday, October 28th from 12pm-3pm at 20001 Crystal Rock Drive in Germantown. The event was originally scheduled for Saturday, September 23, but has been postponed due to weather.

There will be an ambulance, rescue squad, boat support, and fire engines all on display for tours and pictures. The US Park Police will also be landing their Eagle helicopter (time permitting, as they’ll be on duty). There will also be a sprinkler demonstration, showing how quickly a room can burn with vs without sprinklers.

A junior firefighter challenge will be available for kids, where they can try to put out all of the “fires” and then go through a crawl space. There will also be cpr mannequins to learn hands-only CPR **not for an official certification.** Parking for the public is available in the lots by the Germantown Panera and Chick Fil A, as well as the Red Robin/Señor Tequilad area. Limited parking will be available behind Regal because the helicopter will be landing there.
