The fire district is offering activities for children, a medical helicopter was available for tours, vendors from all over Greenville County and the opportunity for community members to interact with first responders.

"We like to bring the community together and to be more proactive within the community," said master firefighter Jeremy Lathem. "We try to go an extra step to bring fire prevention to the front of people's mind, and to open our doors to show that we're always available in our community"
