Lower Macungie wraps up Fire Prevention Week with an open house

Retired arson K-9 Judge attends event

LOWER MACUNGIE TWP., Pa. - The Lower Macungie Fire Department held its annual open house on Saturday, an opportunity for the community to see first-hand what it's like to be a first responder.

"We're trying to educate people not only on what they should be doing when fire strikes but also what we do when fire strikes," said Lower Macungie Fire Chief David Nosal.

The event included demonstrations with a retired arson K9 and a medevac helicopter landing.  People also got an up-close look at the fire department's equipment, a popular activity for the children in attendance.

"We love to see the kids, the kids love to see the fire trucks so it's a win win for everybody," said Nosal.
The open house was also a chance for firefighters to meet the people they serve.

"It's not just putting the water on the fire, it's also working with the community and helping to build a better department," said firefighter James Wagner.

It was a day of education and fun put on by the brave volunteers who work to keep their community safe.
