The Downingtown Fire Dept. volunteers participated, for the first time, with our new recruiting tent, banners and table clothes, at the Annual Chester County Mac & Cheese Cook Off in Kerr Park today. This event was sponsored by the Downingtown/Thorndale Rotary Club.
Our set-up consisted of our new tent, complete with a Power Point movie presentation and plenty of hand-outs for our visitors. In addition we had a static display of Tower 45, Engine 46-2 and Engine 48-5 (Glen Moore Fire Co.) plus a display of some of our equipment. Also, attending and recruiting new volunteers was the Chester County Fire Chiefs Association with the Help Fight Fire initiative for Chester County.
We had a great day, with a few people interested in joining the department. If you are interested in volunteering with the Downingtown Fire Dept., please visit our websites at www.alertfire.org or www.minquasfire.org or www.helpfightfire.com #helpfightfire
