We love showing support to our local fire departments across the Hudson Valley. But the Fair View Fire Department on Violet Avenue in Poughkeepsie, NY holds a special place in our hearts.

Fairview Fire District Helps Local Radio Stations

If you didn't know, the radio station is located at 2 Pendell Road in Poughkeepsie and if you put in the Fair View Fire Departments address (258 Violet Avenue) you'll see that they are located right down the block from us.

In February when the Hudson Valley was hit with that awful cold snap, our buildings pipes burst and the Fair View Fire Department was first on the scene. They've also been there for several other events at the radio station (fire alarms going off, gas leaks, you know the usual) making sure we're all safe.

With that being said, the Fair View Fire Department is hosting a free event for the whole community this weekend with something for everyone in the family.

Free Community Day This Weekend at Fair View Fire Department

This Sunday, October 15th from 1 pm until 5 pm the Fair View Fire Department is opening their doors for a Community Day celebration. Earlier this week the Fair View Fire Department and many others across the nation kicked off Fire Prevention Week.

Community Day is a great way for not only children but adults too, to learn about fire safety through demonstrations with the Fair View firefighters. Local police agencies will also be holding demonstrations as well.

Not only will it be a learning experience for the whole family, it's going to be a whole lot of fun too. There will be food vendors, free ice cream and pop corn, a Touch-a-Truck and so much more!

Again this is a free event at the Fair View Fire Department at 258 Violet Avenue in Poughkeepsie. There is off sight parking and a bus shuttle to bring people to and from Community Day.

Take a Look Inside the Abandoned Bowling Ally in the Staatsburg Firehouse

The Old Staastburg Firehouse (now Roosevelt Engine Co 5.) houses an abandoned bowling ally. Local Hudson Valley firefighters tell us that they believe the bowling ally was created back in the 50s and was used until the early 90s.
