Fire Prevention Day in Rehoboth around the Bandstand

The Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company hosted its Annual Fire Prevention Day commencing 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 2nd at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand. All ages were welcome to attend.

Guests were able to see fire trucks, firefighters, personal watercraft and boats used for water rescues, police officers, EMTs and many more public servants who work hard every day to help keep individuals and families safe. Anyone interested in joining the fire company or another local company is encouraged to stop by and talk to any member at any respective fire company booth.

Service providers included members of the U.S. Coast Guard; Delaware State Fire School (DSFS); Sussex County Emergency Medical Services; fire companies from Indian River, Lewes, Milton and Bethany Beach; DNREC Forestry Services, Fort Miles Museum, Rehoboth Beach Police Department, Delaware State Fire Marshals, and more.

“Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety” is the 2021 theme, which grew out of the increased attention received about alarm notifications being heard in the background sounds of people’s homes during remote learning and work. Recognizing the different sounds alarms make, and the action needed based on that sound, is critical to preventing injury and death from fire.

This year’s theme also pays particular attention to smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and alert devices that meet the needs of people who are deaf or hard of hearing. These includes strobe lights, low-frequency alarms and bed/pillow shakers which activate at the sound of the alarm.
