Join St. Johns County Fire-Rescue and Firefighters for Families for their annual Community Day at Station 10; which is located at 155 Library Blvd, next to the Ponte Vedra library.
This year’s theme is “Stay Fire Smart, Don’t Get Burned”. This free and informative event will be packed full of fun for all ages, with “Patches” the fire fighting robot, a fire safety house simulator, Law Enforcement dog demonstrations, a bounce house, a ladder truck and complimentary hot dogs and refreshments.
New to this year’s event will be multiple free “hands only” CPR classes taught by local instructors. These classes follow American Heart Association (AHA) curriculum are brief and offer a basic overview of CPR skills for the layperson. This class does teach basic CPR skills, but does not issue any certification. The classes will be offered at several announced intervals throughout the event.
“Home Fires claim thousands of lives every year. By using a little extra caution, you can help to safeguard your family,” said Jeremy Robshaw, Public Information Officer for St. Johns County Fire-Rescue. “We hope that you will come out and enjoy our Community Day and also learn tips to keep your family safe.”

The event is free, however, Firefighters for Families will be conducting a food drive and they ask that you please bring a donation of non-perishable foods if you can help.
