CARLTON – The community is welcome to attend an open house on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Carlton Rec Hall, where firefighters will be giving tours of fire trucks, an ambulance and doing demonstrations, including one with auto extrication equipment.

The fire company usually does an open house in April but moved it back until June 23 to increase the chances of better weather.

The open house will be a chance to meet firefighters and EMTs.

The Emergency Management Office will also have a fire safety trailer on site where people can learn about fire prevention and develop a fire escape plan.

The Sheriff’s Office will also be at the open house with K9 Otto and deputies will do a child car seat check for families.

The Fire Company will also share opportunities to serve as firefighters, EMTs or as social members. The age of membership recently was lowered to 16.

Community members can also help with events at the Rec Hall, serving as bartenders, on buildings and grounds or with administrative duties.

The Rec Hall is located at 1853 Oak Orchard Rd.
