32nd Annual Fort Washington Fire Prevention and Safety Expo 2022

Mark your calendars! Come visit us and bring your family to the 32nd Annual Fort Washington Fire Prevention and Life Safety Expo on October 10th, 2022, 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Upper Dublin High School (see flyer for more details).  Fun and educational  for all ages!

We made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Fort Washington Fire Prevention and Safety Expo. Unfortunately, the damage sustained from the tornado in the area around the Upper Dublin Township building and Upper Dublin High School did not allow us to safely hold the event. Below is a look at what you can expect to see at this year's Fire Expo, with photos from the 2019 Expo.  (None was held in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions).

Fire Expo 2019

In 2019, the Fire Expo was held on Monday evening, October 14th, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Each year, we strive to provide new displays and activities for the enjoyment and education of the entire family.  The Expo in 2019 was no different.  Special crowd pleasers included a live burn demonstrating the importance of home fire sprinkler systems, vehicle rescues, helicopter evacuation, K-9 demonstrations and extinguishing oven fires.

 

 

Some information on our annual event

The Fort Washington Fire Expo is held annually on the Monday of the week after Fire Prevention Week.  Initially started as a way to educate the public about fire safety and fire prevention, the EXPO has grown into a much anticipated and very successful community event.  Included in the program now are many areas of injury prevention for people of all ages, as well as emergency preparedness.  Our visitors come from near and far and are mostly families with small children.  The crowd has been estimated to be in excess of 1,000.

 

Our participants include dozens of fire and emergency squads, primarily from the Southeastern Pa area.  We encourage our participants to demonstrate their "specialties", such as vehicle rescue/extrication, drafting, hazmat and other skills.

Along with emergency responders, we invite numerous organizations such as Abington Jefferson Health, the American Fire Sprinkler Association,  American Red Cross, Doylestown Health, Einstein Health, Montgomery County Department of Public Safety, Montco Sheriff, Pa. State Police, PECO Energy, Pa State Fire Commissioner's Office, St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, Temple Health and many others. 
 
Many thanks to the Upper Dublin Township, the Upper Dublin School District, Gerhard's Appliances, Flourtown Sunoco; as well as all the other participants who contribute to the success of the event!
