Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad to Hold Annual Open House on Oct. 6

Family-friendly event will go on rain or shine.


The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad will open their doors for “Rescue Day 2012" on Saturday, Oct. 6. The annual event is an opportunity for kids (and grown-ups) to tour the station, see up close demonstrations of rescue, medical and firefighting equipment and check out the squad’s 1970s “Cadillac” ambulance.

This year, the open house will feature a special visit by a helicopter used in life-threatening medical situations. Visitors will be able to see the helicopter up close, and meet the flight medics.

Training for people interested in becoming a firefighter, paramedic or EMT also will be offered.

As if that weren’t enough to get your family excited, there also will be free firefighter hats and a moon bounce (for kids only).

Since 1937 (when it was known as the Chevy Chase First Aid Corps), the Bethesda-Chevy Chase rescue Squad has been fielding as many as 10,000 calls per year from Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Friendship Heights, Glen Echo and surrounding areas.
