On Tuesday, March 13th, Echo Hose Co. #1 participated in a Safety Day Event organized by Turtor Time, located at 708 Bridgeport Ave. Firefighters discussed fire safety with parents and children and had informational handouts readily available. Children were also given a tour of fire apparatus which they got to sit in and view our equipment.

Echo Hose is requsted throughout the year at many daycare facilities to teach about the importance of fire safety and enhance parents awarence of fire prevention in the home. The Shelton Fire Department annually conducts fire prevention classes during the month of October throughout the Shelton School System. Echo Hose is willing to provide fire prevention classes to any facility upon request anytime during the year.
