The free, one-day, family event will include opportunities to:

  • See fire apparatus and equipment on display.
  • Meet some of your local firefighters.

“The Ann Arbor Fire Department is excited to partner with the State Street District to offer this free family event," said Ann Arbor Fire Chief Mike Kennedy. “This is a great way for our firefighters to interact with the community, and it also provides the rare chance for those who attend to spray a real fire hose and run through water sprayed by our fire trucks — all at safe pressures, of course."

Be sure to bring a towel!
