Westminster Fire Department held their Spring Open House on Saturday, May 3rd, and Jim Black Construction was on hand again to connect with the community. Every year around this time, the fire fighters of Westminster Station 5 gather together and hold a cook out with supplies donated by JBC.
While fire staff handed out plastic fire helmets to the younger visitors, Jim Black Construction passed out bubbles and suckers in addition to the burgers, hot dogs, chips, and beverages enjoyed by the neighborhood. Tours of the fire engines and rides on their vintage fire truck were also enjoyed by kids and adults alike.
Despite some inclement weather, which shut down the usual obstacle course and other outdoor games, the community around the fire station still showed up in droves to chat and dine with their local fire heroes.
