June is ‘Meet Your First Responders’ Month at Museum

June is “Meet Your First Responders Month” at Haverhill Firefighting Museum.

Each Saturdays during June, the Haverhill Firefighting Museum, 75 Kenoza Ave., will have first responders available to educate children on what they should do during emergencies, and tell stories about their careers.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturdays, and first responders will be available from noon to 1 p.m.

  • June 13: Lawrence Fire Chief Brian Moriarty, formerly of the Haverhill Fire Department, discusses what firefighters do as first responders, and will share his experiences while helping citizens in need. A working Haverhill Fire Department truck will be on site.
  • June 20: Trinity EMS will bring EMTs and an ambulance to the museum so children can learn what EMTs do on the job, and tour through the ambulance to see what is inside.
  • June 27: Haverhill Police will be at the museum with a cruiser. Children will learn the role of police officers during and after emergency calls, and experience the inside of a patrol car.

Museum mascot Dottie the Dalmatian will be at the museum each day should parents wish to take pictures of their children with Dottie. An adult must accompany all children.

Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for children under 12 and $10 for families. For more information, call (978) 372-4061 or visit www.haverhillfirefightingmuseum.org.
