Rocky’s Ace Hardware, a family-owned business with neighborhood-based stores in seven states, is recognizing October as national Fire Safety Month with special events at all of their locations, which will include participation by local fire departments. The free events will be held on Saturday, October 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will also feature grilling demonstrations.
“We love the opportunity to host community events at our neighborhood stores, and this one will provide both education and entertainment,” said Rocky’s Ace Hardware President and CEO Rocco Falcone. “We have First Alert® fire safety items on sale, including fire extinguishers and smoke detectors, so attendees can leave with the information and tools they need to enhance their home fire safety efforts.”
Each Rocky’s Ace Hardware location will have local firefighters on hand to provide information and instructions about fire safety, including fire extinguisher demonstrations and the opportunity to check out their fire engines and equipment.
“Although summer has ended, grilling season is still going strong, so we’ll also offer grilling demonstrations, safety tips and specials,” said Falcone. “We’ll help everyone let their inner grill master shine all year long.”
Rocky’s Ace Hardware has locations in Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. To find a location, visit rockys.com/store-locator.
