Most often the public sees fire crews when they are busy at an emergency scene; thus they are unapproachable at that time. This program allows the public to see their Fire Department in a different light and be able to interact with the firefighters. People will be able to:
Ask the crew questions; seek advice on summer safety and fire safety in general.
Check out the fire trucks & equipment.
Try some "hands-on" activities.
Have some fun & learn something.
Please be advised that all Town maintained facilities are adhering to the STAGE 3 water restrictions. This means that flower baskets and planting areas will be hand watered with non-potable water and grass will begin to brown. New landscaping around the Pine Street/Railway Boulevard intersection will be watered between 6 am and 10 am with sprinklers in compliance with the STAGE 3 restrictions. Our SPLASH PARK at Centennial Park will remain open at this time, but this could be subject to change. The fountain at Millennium Park will be topped up with water trucked from our non-potable water supply. Community events such as the Fire Department’s upcoming “Hot Summer Nights” program will also use non-potable water treated with chlorine, just like pool water. Stay tuned for updates. The Town of Creston wishes everyone a safe and happy summer!
