71st Annual Ice Cream Social
The Ice Cream Social offers something for all ages! Demonstrations take place front and center all day long from 11AM to 5PM as our firefighters demonstrate their skills! Families get to experience the jaws of life, truck demonstrations, technical rope rescues, fire extinguisher demonstrations and much more. While you watch, enjoy some fresh fire house favorites like our famous BBQ chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, cole slaw, baked beans and of course ice cream. In addition, we have multiple bounce houses for the kids to play in, real fire hoses with water to spray, foam fun, antique fire apparatus and of course paint the fire truck and much more! Check out our activities page for more details.
2019 will mark the 71st Annual Ice Cream Social hosted by the Washington Township Firefighters Association. During this annual event, the Washington Township Fire Department demonstrates its service capabilities including: automobile crash extrications, fire extinguisher demonstrations, rope rescues, ladder climbs, and a visit from CareFlight and MedFlight Helicopters. We have games for children, antique fire truck displays, and plenty of great fire house cooked food including BBQ chicken, fresh sweet corn on the cob, hamburgers, hot dogs, pies, and of course, ice cream. This family event is well attended and has local media coverage.
Proceeds earned from past Ice Cream Socials have been used to purchase new 2-way radios, tone activated radio systems, firefighting tools, EMS equipment, safety products, and most recently supplied all frontline apparatus with GPS units to enhance response times, new LED flashlights, and CO monitors to help increase Crew Safety.
This year our goal is to earn funds for additional Thermal Imaging Cameras for 10 front line apparatus.
This will help us comply with today’s ever changing safety standards and continue to deliver first class service to our community.
The Ice Cream Social is held on the second Sunday in August every year. This year's Ice Cream Social will be held on August 11th 2019 at Fire Station 44 in Centerville Ohio.
