November 4 At Fire Station: Open House At Botsford Fire Rescue

Published: October 27, 2017

Just a few weeks after offering students within their district fire prevention presentations, Botsford Fire Rescue members will open their fire station at 315 South Main Street to the public on Saturday, November 4.

“We’d like the public to come in and meet us, see the apparatus, tour the firehouse, and maybe join our team,” said BFR Lieutenant Tom Paloian. The company is actively seeking new members, he said.

Company elections recently resulted in a new slate of officers. In addition to Mr Paloian, the current roster includes Andrew White as the chief of Botsford Fire Rescue; Pete Blomberg, assistant chief; Wayne Geitz, first assistant chief; Jim Swenson, captain; Kyle Placko, second lieutenant; and John Benvenuti, chief engineer.
From noon until 4, firefighters will be available to answer questions about their work as members of one of the town’s five volunteer fire companies.

There will be face painting and a bounce house for the younger guests, and free refreshments for all visitors.

Firefighters will also be presenting two demonstrations that afternoon. At 1 pm, they will demonstrate the extrication of a patient from a motor vehicle following and accident. A live burn will be conducted at 3 pm.
