Kearny FD hosts annual open house

Each year in October, to mark Fire Safety Awareness Month, local fire departments host open houses across the continent. Such was the case last week in Kearny, where this little guy got to be a Junior Firefighter alongside three of Kearny’s bravest. There were plenty of other fun activities that night, as well.  Photo by Barbara B. Goldberg via
