If you've ever wanted to know what it's like to be a firefighter, today is your day. The Danbury Fire Department is hosting an Open House with demonstrations and other events.
Firefighter Nick Cabral says they'll show how to do a vehicle extrication and some firefighters will repel down ropes from the fire trucks. Kids will get the chance to climb into fire trucks and use a fire hose aimed at a target. Cabral says they hope this is an educational day as well as being fun. Adults can practice their fire extinguisher skills.
The Fire Marshall's office will be on hand today as well to talk with families about evacuation plans and testing smoke detectors.
The Open House is from Saturday 11am to 3pm at Fire Headquarters on New Street.
