Dalmatian Day Goes Virtual at the Museum: Join the Fun!
The FASNY Museum of Firefighting’s annual Dalmatian Day event is going virtual! This year’s virtual event is scheduled for October 17, 2020 from 10 am until 2 pm, and can be accessed from the Museum’s website: www.fasnyfiremuseum.com. This is a FREE virtual event, and we are planning many fun and exciting online activities for this special day. There will be a live Q&A session with Molly the Museum Dog: type in your questions during this session and learn all about this local celebrity. There will be a virtual visit to the firehouse that you will not want to miss! Molly will also show you her athletic side during her agility program. Lots of other Dalmatians will be dropping in from all over the world to say “hi,”, and we will also host some great entertainers during the program. Enjoy storytime live with Molly the Museum Dog, as she shares a tale from the firehouse with you. Most importantly, Molly will present multiple fire safety education programs for the viewers.
We believe teaching fire safety and prevention is crucial to the safety and well-being of the children in our community, and the US Fire Administration (USFA) agrees. This agency found that fire setting, which children often do out of curiosity, can be curtailed in a community by providing fire safety education for children throughout the year. Virtual Dalmatian Day will help us to teach and reinforce fire safety and prevention concepts, which in turn will make our children and our community safer.
The Museum would like to thank the event’s Gold sponsor, Hudson River Bank, and Trust Foundation. The event’s Silver sponsors are Pro-Printers, Spring Garden, Garrison Fire and Rescue Corp., Herrington’s, Todd Farrell’s Car Care Center, Mid-Hudson Cable, Lawlor’s Package Store, Columbia Co.
