The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad will hold its free annual Open House, “Rescue Day 2014,” on Saturday, October 11, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., rain or shine. Rescue Day 2014 is being held in conjunction with the Taste of Bethesda, the outdoor food festival held just two blocks away in Bethesda's restaurant district.

Rescue Day will feature fire and rescue activities and displays for all ages, including tours of the station; live demonstrations of emergency medical, rescue, and firefighting equipment; free kids’ firefighter hats; and a moonbounce. The Rescue Squad’s most advanced firefighting and rescue equipment will be on display, including emergency vehicles and the Squad’s thermal imaging camera that is used to help locate fire victims in blinding smoke.

Free parking is available in downtown Bethesda's public garages. We recommend either the garage at Woodmont Ave & Rugby Ave or the garage at Auburn Ave & Del Ray Ave.

* Note: Our annual fund drive books, being distributed door to door in our service area by our members, went to print before the Rescue Day date was set. The correct date is Saturday, October 11th (as stated above) and not Saturday, October 4th (as printed).
