Circle the date!

A shameless plug for people and an event close to my heart:  If you live in or around Baltimore, you should bring your kids and yourselves to the Child Safety Day at the Providence Volunteer Fire Company, at 1416 Providence Rd in Towson.  (Take exit 28 off the Baltimore Beltway and go north a mile; the firehouse is on your left.)  Circle Saturday, January 10 on your calendar - 10 AM til 2 PM.

What goes on at Child Safety Day?  New York Life Insurance Co. (I should do a plug for them because that's where my nest egg is being kept warm) will be there to make identification cards for the kids.  That's important these days.  Kids (and folks of all ages who wonder) will learn how to call 911, and the family can find out how to set up an escape plan in case of an emergency in the home. There will be lots of fire department and police department exhibits. It's also a chance to meet the men and women who serve their community for free -  the firefighters of Providence VFC.

And - Holy Batmobile in the parking lot!  - there will be a special guest from Gotham City from 11-1...Batman himself!

Back in the day...
This is the volunteer fire company that was across the street and down one from my childhood home, so I pretty much came of age there, waiting to become a member at age 16, and fighting fires until I got married and moved to another part of town.  But this company is still in my heart as the place where my public safety roots grew, and Child Safety Day is the perfect place to spend a worthwhile time with the family on a Saturday in Baltimore MD USA!
The station today

Come see the new ladder truck!
