The Rensselaer Volunteer Fire Department hosted a Fire Prevention Open House and Safety Day event Thursday evening. Local kids and their families lined up to get snacks, meet Sparky the Dalmation, receive a free bicycle helmet and test a big bounce house inside the fire station, along with other activities. More photos and a video from that evening will be available at rensselaerrepublican.com.
