Wells Maine Fire Department is excited to announce its 1st Annual Antique Fire Apparatus Show and Open House on Saturday, October 7th, from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm at the Wells Fire Department, located at 1563 Post Rd, Wells, ME 04090. The day will include fun for the whole family, and the Fire Department is eager to give the public a glimpse at the work they do, through an Open House, tours, and various demos throughout the course of the day.
Antique Fire Apparatus from Southern Maine and New Hampshire will be on display. Many fire apparatus owners and crew will be available to answer questions and relay details about each vehicle.
The public will get a chance to tour the Fire Department facilities, accompanied by a staff member, and learn more about the inner workings of the department. Additionally, staff will host demos throughout the day, including donning full turnout gear, forcible entry demonstrations, displaying a hydraulic extraction “Jaws of Life” tool, and fire extinguisher demonstrations. The new Tower Truck will be featured and its capabilities will be shown to the public.
The family fun continues with food, door prizes and Touch-a-Trucks. Maine Diner, Fred’s Fried Dough and Plot Twist Pretzels will be on hand to serve up delicious food. All participants have a chance for a free entry to win one of our incredible door prizes.
"The event is new to Wells and it is a chance to showcase our new fire station, equipment and our capabilities to the residents,” says Wells Fire Chief, Mark Dupuis. “We are excited to showcase our commitment to the Town with an open house and a nostalgic look back into the history of fire apparatus in the region, and we hope to see the town come out to enjoy the day with us.”
We hope to see you for a day of Family, Fun and Fire Trucks! For more information, please reach out to the Wells Fire Department at (207) 646-7912.
