Emergency service organizations within Bristol Borough have a long history of assisting fellow residents and the surrounding communities in times of crisis. The staff of the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library, 680 Radcliffe St., Bristol, invites the public to celebrate Bristol Borough’s emergency services at the opening reception for the fall exhibit, Answering the Call: Bristol’s First Responders, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4.
Enjoy light refreshments while learning more about the distinguished histories of the borough’s fire companies, the Bristol Borough Police Department, the Bucks County Rescue Squad, and other emergency personnel.
See antique fire equipment and discover what happens in the “day in the life” of trained police officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians. Families with young children are encouraged to visit the kid’s corner in the exhibit and dress up as their favorite first responder.
The exhibit continues during regular library hours through Saturday, Nov. 2.
