OPEN HOUSE 1998
On October 10, 1998, the Machias Volunteer Fire Department celebrated
Fire Prevention Week with an open house at the bingo hall. Fire Safety
information and displays were presented by the Fire Department and the
Junior Fire Department, and all the apparatus was on display. In addition,
a mock auto accident was staged to demonstrate the extrication and patient
care services provided by the department. The Franklinville Fire Department
demonstrated the use of their "Jaws of Life" tools, and Olean 10 (the
Advanced Life Support unit from Olean General Hospital) was also on hand
to assist in the drill. In spite of the cloudy weather, Mercy Flight was
able to land and demonstrate its medivac capabilities. Below are some
photos highlighting the day:
