South of Boston Papa Ginos Fire Station Open Houses October 2017

Each October, Papa Gino’s teams up with local fire departments to promote fire safety. The Fire Prevention Open House program, which has grown to include more than 100 fire stations throughout New England, demonstrates Papa Gino’s real commitment to the community. The company provides press and educational materials that fire stations can use during their school outreach programs. They also provide pizza and activity sheets during the stations’ open house events for the children who visit. In most locations, kids will have the opportunity to explore a safety house as well as check out the fire trucks.  

This open house is held in recognition of National Fire Safety Month in October. Participants will receive safety tips, including “stop, drop and roll,” how to plan escape routes and how to crawl safely through a smoke-filled room. Papa Gino’s, the Dedham-based pizza chain, will also provide free pizza
