The Sheridan Fire-Rescue Department is celebrating National Emergency Medical Services Week this week, culminating the observance with a public Open House this Saturday, May 21st from 10 am to 2 pm at the Sheridan Fire Station. The theme for this year is “EMS, Everyday Heroes.”

The Open House is an opportunity for members of the community, Fire Marshall Brian Songer said in a media release, to get a hands-on look at what it takes to provide professional emergency medical service to the Sheridan area.

Refreshments will be served, and events during the open house will include Fire Station Tours, displays by Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and displays of Emergency Medical Equipment and tools. Kids will get an opportunity to learn and use some of the tools of the trade in the emergency medical and fire service.

To learn more, contact Fire Marshall Brian Songer at 675-4227
