Fire Department's recently held Open House (Photo Essay)
A nice event on a perfect weather day.
Good morning Norwich,
It was a very nice day last Saturday with a nice turnout of people visiting the Fire department open house. The staff spent the morning and afternoon doing tours, showing the children and adults the trucks and fire department gear. It was also an opportunity to explain to the residents on what it’s like to be part of the Norwich Fire Department. Matt Swett and others also got to catch up with Sonny a former mechanic from the DPW and that was also a highlight of the day as he was such a wonderful part of the town team.
Here are the photos of the event: (Photos taken by myself and Matt Swett)
Norwich Fire Department Open House was held on Saturday May 13, 2023
A group photo of some of the Town of Norwich firefighters
And of course the residents who came to take in the days events (all smiles here)
And these two are smiling while they cook up a some juicy hot dogs and burgers for the crowd to enjoy. ( Yes ! I had one or two even )
And it looks likes others enjoyed them as well.
A nice photo of the support team and yes they are smiling also and a side bar conversation going on in the sidelines.
This sure is a Proud Norwich Fire Chief posing for a photo
Yep ! I think they just might sign up to be firefighters when they grow up as a mom is close by playing hide and seek perhaps.
A little catching up with some friends
Another nice photo and a scooter to boot
Yes it was a great day catching up with Sonny, a former DPW employee
It is always nice to just visit with no pressure (just chilling out I would say)
The equipment is looking in top shape and ready for another tour
And these two youngsters wasted no time checking things out
As others wave to the crowd from inside the fire engine
A great day had by all that attended (Editors note: there were more people who attended than the photos show as I had another event to attend and arrived a little later on.)
Special thanks to Chief Alex Northern , his team of firefighters and volunteers and support staff for making this a fun and informative event.
