The Inter- Canyon Fire Department visits Tiny Town

Posted

On July 10th, the Inter-Canyon Fire Department visited Tiny Town, but their call of the day was ensuring fun for kids.

In the heart of Morrison lies Tiny Town, located at 6249 S Turkey Creek Rd. It’s a small, literally, community park where families can enjoy the smaller things in life. Children can ride the train, go inside miniature houses, and enjoy a delicious cone of ice cream.

Every year, Tiny Town welcomes the Inter-Canyon Fire Department to join in on the fun. The fire department began coming to Tiny Town 10 years ago.

The department chief, Chief Shirlaw, sets it up with the help of volunteers from the fire department. The fire department brought with them some activities that children can partake in to see a glimpse of being a firefighter.

Visitors to Tiny Town that day had to watch out so as to not get sprayed with a hose. The fire department had a miniature house where children could spray with the firetruck hose.

They also had two fire trucks, one modern and one a classic, which children could see inside and do things like sound the siren. 

For Byleigh Mcdowell, 9, and her family, it was their first time at Tiny Town. “I think it’s really cool,” Mcdowell said. “The hose was super heavy.”

The fire department enjoys community events like what was held at Tiny Town. It allows them to wind down and enjoy the community they heavily protect. 

“All around, it’s a good event,” Deputy Chief, Matt Araki, said. “It’s fun that we can help out people and support the small business here- it’s a win-win.”
