Haverhill Firefighting Museum to unveil new Children’s Corner during its opening day celebration on May 3.
The Children’s Corner is equipped with a fire engine children can actually play in, fire reels and hoses children can pull, and a dress-up area.
Children will also be able to meet and have pictures taken with museum mascot Dottie the Dalmatian.
A working fire truck from the Haverhill Fire Department will be on site, and the department’s fire safety smoke tunnel will be there to teach children how to crawl to safety beneath smoke should a fire occur. Children can participate in a bucket brigade and experience what it was like to put out fires during early times. The museum gift shop will be open and refreshments will be available for purchase.
The Haverhill Firefighting Museum, located in the Historic Armory Building at 75 Kenoza Ave., is home to one of the largest collections of New England Firefighting History in New England. For more information, visit online at www.haverhillfirefightingmuseum.com or call 978-372-4061.
