Beacon Hose to Participate in Operation EDITH on Oct. 7

Update: Great job to all who participated!

Beacon Hose Co. No. 1 wants to remind all of our residents that this Wednesday, October 7, is Fire Prevention Day! Unfortunately, Beacon Hose isn’t able to visit Laurel Ledge or host an open house this year, but the fire department is inviting everyone to join Operation EDITH!

Operation EDITH stands for “Exit Drills in the Home” and is intended to help families practice their home fire escape plans. All you need to do to participate is wait until Beacon Hose’s fire whistle sounds at 6 p.m., practice your home fire escape plan as a family, and wait outside at your meeting place. Beacon Hose’s firetrucks will be driving through many neighborhoods to see how many families have a secure plan and practiced it with us.

Neighborhoods Beacon Hose expects to visit between 6-6:15 p.m. include: Highland/Hill Section, Burton Road, Old Sawmill Drive, Cook Lane, Bethany Road, Starwood/Noe area, the Avenues, Main Street, Kaleas Way, Hockanum Glen, Skokorat Road, Munson Road, Andrasko Road, Beacon Hill Commons, Hillside area, Stoddard area, and Rimmon Hill Road.

If you don’t have a home fire escape plan made, check out the materials we have over here (and you can enter our contest, too). Remember that every day is fire prevention day! Let us know if you any questions.
