Annual fire muster coming up Sept. 10
Engine 260 will host the 45th Annual Engine 260 Antique Fire Apparatus Show & Muster Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Eisenhower Park, located off Route 121 in Milford.
Activities include a motorcade of more than 50 fire apparatus that will travel from the Liberty Rock Shopping Plaza, 589 Bridgeport Avenue, to Meadowside Road, through Milford Center onto North Street, ending at Eisenhower Park. The motorcade will begin at 9 a.m. and arrive at approximately 9:45 a.m. at the park.
Children can be a “Firefighter for the Day” – put on a helmet and handle a real fire hose. An interactive fire prevention trailer will be on site and firefighters will teach children about smoke alarms and how to get out of a burning home.
Fire apparatus and firefighter teams will compete against each other, showing off their skills and battling for the first place trophy in eight different competitions.
Admission to the general public is free. Proceeds from the refreshment area will be donated to the Milford Recreation Department program for Children with Special Needs – Camp Happiness.
This year’s feature truck that will lead the parade is a 1926 Mack AC pumper owned and operated by Henry Sanford of Redding.
