Cub Scouts Visit

On Thursday, October 16th, the Cub Scouts Troop 500 from Coopertown visited the firehouse.
The troop learned about fire prevention, the dos and don’ts of fire safety and got up close to the fire trucks and equipment. It was a fun night for them and we hope they shared the fire safety tips with their families.

Cancer Awareness Night

The Haverford High football team held its 2nd annual Cancer Awareness game this past Friday night. As a way of supporting the team in their endeavor to raise cancer awareness, as well as supporting cancer patients and their families within our community and the Oakmont family, Oakmont purchased a pink jersey with the #1 on the back. The pink jersey was worn during the game by a Haverford player. After the game a group of firefighters from Oakmont went onto the field and the player presented the jersey to the firehouse. This was a great way to raise money and awareness to fight this horrible disease that has taken so many. Oakmont was proud to participate in this event.

Thank you!

Oakmont received some letters of appreciation from school kids. During the final day of Fire Prevention Week, these letters of appreciation always help to remind us that the kids we meet and educate listen and appreciate the time we take to teach them and make their world a safer place. It is always nice to receive the letters, to help remind everyone how important a job firefighting is.

Fire Prevention Week at Schools

Oakmont attended and hosted many different schools at the firehouse this week to promote fire safety and fire prevention during fire prevention week. School kids were able to learn all about fire safety, the dos and don’ts of fire safety and get up close to the fire trucks and equipment.

Operation EDITH

On Wednesday, October 8th, Oakmont held Operation EDITH at The Halderman Residence on Woodleigh Road in Havertown. Operation EDITH(Exit Drills In The Home) is a creative way for Oakmont to teach the community about fire prevention, fire safety, and escape planning. This event allows families to see firsthand how firefighters respond to a call. Kids are able to see the firefighters up-close and in action while learning important fire tips and the dos and don’ts of fire safety.

On Friday, October 3rd, Oakmont held its Fire Prevention Open House at Grasslyn Park. There were activities for all ages to learn all about fire safety and fire prevention.  See the pictures below for all the fun activities!
