Thursday at the New York State Fair is Fire and Rescue Day. It also happens to be Veteran's Day, which means military personnel receive free admission to the fair with proper identification. YNN's Brad Vivacqua tells us about the day ahead.
NEW YORK STATE FAIR -- Fire and Rescue Day at the fair is just another way to show appreciation to the people that protect us every day. It is also an opportunity to learn proper fire preparation.
If you're heading to the fair on Thursday, you can bring the kids to the daily puppet show or the House of Hazards to learn about fire safety hazards inside your home, and what to do in the case of a fire.
Parents can also pick up information on smoke detectors and learn how to keep your family safe. The fire safety zone is open every day, but Thursday is a great day to take full advantage of it.
"Come on over and watch the puppet show where we talk about crawling low under smoke if you've got caught in the house on fire, the importance of having smoke detectors in every room in your house, and also, if your clothes catch on fire, to stop drop and roll," explained Fran Stepien, Fire Education Center Volunteer. "Some of the very important fire safety messages we try to get across."
There will also be a memorial service to remember fallen firefighters and a service to remember our veterans.
