BEAVERCREEK — The City of Beavercreek Parks and Recreation and the Beavercreek Township Fire Department hosted Try a Truck at its Municipal Maintenance Facility, 789 Orchard Lane and Fire Safety Open House in honor of Fire Prevention Week Oct. 14.

Try a Truck allows children of all ages to have the experience of seeing up close a variety of vehicles. This is their opportunity to step into a forklift, hop into a street sweeper, climb into a fire truck or buckle up in a police cruiser.

The fire department allowed visitors to check out fire equipment, see Careflight helicopter land and meet their mascot Sparky.
