Throughout the day, guests will be provided with an inside look at public safety through live demonstrations, fire safety scenarios, informational booths and static equipment displays. The community will also have an opportunity to meet the men and women behind our world-class operations and experience the challenging situations they encounter on a daily basis.

At noon, Station 56 will honor the age-old tradition of truck “push-in” where together; MDFR personnel, elected officials and residents of the surrounding community, will push in the station’s brand new fire truck.
