An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until August 10, 2019
Monroe County Fire Rescue will host “Beat the Heat” events this summer for children of all ages throughout the Island Chain. Monroe County firefighters and firetrucks will provide a gentle stream of misting water in a safe and fun environment.“It’s a great way to meet your neighborhood firefighters and cool off from the summer sun,” said Steve Hudson, Monroe County Fire Rescue deputy chief. “
For the past three years, these have been events that our staff looks forward to hosting.”Children should wear bathing suits, water shoes and sunscreen and bring a bottle of water and a towel. Monroe County Fire Rescue will also provide snow cones.
All the events are on Saturday, from 10 to 11 a.m.
The dates and locations are:
• Aug. 3 – Big Coppitt Fire Station, 276 Avenue F
• Aug. 10 – Bernstein Park, 6751 5th St., Stock Island
