Open House and New Fire Truck Dedication to Take Place Saturday
Franklin Fire Station 2 will Host Event from 9:30-11:30 AM
Franklin, TN – On Saturday, November 16, the Franklin Fire Department will celebrate the arrival of several new fire trucks with a dedication ceremony and open house. The event will take place at Franklin Fire Station 2, from 9:30 – 11:30 AM.
The event will include a ceremonial “wetdown” of the new apparatus, which will start at 10 AM. During the wetdown, officials will throw buckets of water on the trucks, and children will be given towels to help dry them off, shine them up, and place them into service.
There will be station tours, apparatus demonstrations, and refreshments. There will also be giveaways for children and adults, including free carbon monoxide alarms for qualifying households. Franklin Fire Department commemorative bicentennial t-shirts will be available to purchase. For those who want to support the Franklin Firefighters' Toy & Clothing Drive, gift request tags will be available.
