Jordan Paquette and Carol Blanshine of CVFRS, help build a structure that will be burned during the live burn demo at this year’s public safety day. This burn demo will demonstrate the different effects a home fire can have when you sleep with your bedroom door closed versus sleeping with your bedroom door open. Photo contributed.

On Saturday, Sept. 22, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Charlotte Volunteer Fire and Rescue Services welcomes the public for a day of fun and education for all ages.
