Swansea Police and Fire Invite Community to Public Safety Day This Weekend

SWANSEA — Police Chief Marc Haslam and Fire Chief Eric Hajder would like to invite community members to attend Swansea Police and Fire’s upcoming Public Safety Day this weekend.


Sunday, Oct. 15 from 1-3 p.m.


Swansea Fire Station No. 2, 50 New Gardners Neck Road


Swansea community members are invited to come down to Fire Station No. 2 to celebrate Public Safety Day. This year is the 30th anniversary of Swansea’s Public Safety Day and the event will feature an abundance of family-friendly activities for all to enjoy.

The festivities kick off with a parade of apparatus at 12:30 p.m. The parade will depart from Fire Station 1 onto Main Street to Gardners Neck Road, then to Route 6, Maple Avenue, Pearse Road, and Route 103, concluding at Fire Station 2.

Following the parade, community members will be invited to tour the station and take part in different activities. Activities include a blood pressure screening, extraction and fire extinguisher demonstrations by members of the department, and target practice during which children will attempt to hit targets with a fire hose stream.

Sparky the Fire Dog will be in attendance in addition to state and local police, National Grid and Liberty Gas.

In addition to trying on firefighter gear and air tanks, attendees will also have the opportunity to check out antique fire apparatus.

There will also be door prizes, raffles, handouts and refreshments for all to enjoy.

Swansea Police and Fire looks forward to meeting members of the community this weekend!
