Franklin Fire Department open house

On Saturday, Nov. 16, the Franklin Fire Department will celebrate the arrival of several new fire trucks with a dedication ceremony and open house.

The event will take place at Franklin Fire Station 2 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. It will include a ceremonial “wetdown” of the new apparatus at 10 a.m., during which officials will throw buckets of water on the trucks, and children will be given towels to help dry them off, shine them up and place them into service.

The new apparatuses include Tower 1 and Tower 2, 2019 Sutphen SPH 100-foot Platform Ladder Trucks and 2019 SVI Hazmat, Heavy Rescue and Technical Rescue Trucks.

There will be station tours, apparatus demonstrations and refreshments available for attendees. There will also be giveaways for children and adults, including free carbon monoxide alarms for qualifying households.

Franklin Fire Department commemorative bicentennial t-shirts will also be available to purchase, and for those who want to support the Franklin Firefighters' Toy & Clothing Drive, gift request tags will be available.

Franklin Fire Station 2 is located at 907 Murfreesboro Road. Additional parking will be available at Full Service Insurance, at 903 Murfreesboro Road.
