Fire safety open house

The Abington Fire Department will hold an open house Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. at its headquarters at 1040 Bedford St. Equipment displays, educational handouts, and free pizza provided by Papa Gino’s will be part of the event. Fire Chief John Nuttall said the event includes a lesson for children on what to do if a smoke detector goes off. “October is Fire Safety Month,  and this event is held during Fire Safety Week, so we try to remind people that summer is over and as we begin to close up houses and put on heaters, we need to check our carbon monoxide and smoke alarms,” said Nuttall.
