Kiwanis: Serving the Germantown Community

 

2016 Germantown Fire Safety Fair

 

All of our youngsters will be on hand for the 2016 Germantown Fire Safety Fair this Saturday. Fire trucks and fanfare will be the order of the day when the Germantown Fire Department holds its annual learning event here in Germantown, Wisconsin. Kiwanis of Germantown is proud to participate in the fair which is a teaching opportunity for young and old.

 

Our annual Fire Safety Fair is held the first Saturday in October. The fair includes an opportunity to stress safety and health issues in our community. It is specially designed to appeal to young families. On display will be fire trucks and equipment from Germantown and neighboring communities. On the schedule for the day’s events will be mock demonstrations on how to extinguish house fires, car fires and many others. The Germantown fire fighters will show techniques in auto fire extrications and the use of sprinkler systems. Familes will see the Survive Alive House, CPR Training information and Flight For Life services. Local businesses which deal with fire safety products and clean-up services will be on hand.

 

The fair is open to the public and free of charge. It includes a free lunch for participants. The fair will run from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., October 1, 2016. The Safety Fair will be held at Fire Station No. 2, N115 W18700 Edison Drive, Germantown, Wisconsin in the Industrial Park. 

 

The Germantown Fire Department is a combination of full-time fire fighters and EMT’s on staff  and a support group of highly dedicated “Paid-On-Call” (POC) fire fighters. Germantown Kiwanis salutes our fire fighters for keeping our community safe.

What Is Kiwanis?

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities.

Germantown, Wisconsin Kiwanis

Germantown Kiwanis has been serving the community for over 29 years. Its volunteers have raised funds to give back to the community and to help support Germantown youth with leadership programs in the Germantown schools at the elementary level with K-Kids, middle school level with Builder’s Club and high school level with Key Club. These clubs all help kids learn about the value of volunteerism in the community. In addition, Kiwanis awards educational scholarships; sponsors youth sports teams, works with the PTA to offer education grants to help teachers develop special educational programs in the classroom and other volunteer work to support youth and the community. To support these activities, Kiwanis organizes a number of fund-raising events including the Germantown July 4th Festivities, the Taste of Germantown events and the project to build the Gehl Foods Performing Arts Pavillion in Firemens Park.

The Kiwanis Club of Germantown, Wisconsin is proud to support youth in our community. We are a proud group of community volunteers comprised of individuals from a wide array of backgrounds. Some of our members volunteer as individuals, parents, educators, civic leaders, or business owners. Anyone who is interested in making Germantown a better place to live is welcome to join us!
