Fire Prevention Parade

The Upper Darby Township Fire Prevention Parade is the culmination of Fire Prevention Week.

Historically the Parade has begun at Drexel Hill Middle School located at State Road and Shadeland Avenue. The Parade route goes down Kenwood Road to Bond Avenue and ultimately ends up at Aronimink School. It features local marching bands, elected officials, the Marine Corp. League Honor Guard as well as various fire trucks, from both Upper Darby and the surrounding communites.

Following the parade, the Upper Darby Fire Department will distribute fire prevention materials, assorted novelties for children and there will be demonstrations by members of the fire department. The demonstrations will include high angle rope rescue, vehicle extrication using the "JAWS OF LIFE". There will also be demonstrations on "Stop Drop and Roll". Firefighters will be available distributing fire prevention literature, fire safety tips and will be available to answer questions.

The program is for all ages. Please join us and help in keeping Upper Darby a fire safe community.
