The Bedford Street Fire Station welcomed the public.
Saturday was one of those crisp, clean-smelling New England fall days, perfect for picking apples, taking a walk or visiting Lexington Fire Department for its annual open house. It’s a tradition here, one that parents, grandparents and their youngsters enjoy every year from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s not clear how many years the Lexington Fire Department has opened the doors of its Bedford Street Headquarters to the public, but it was already an annual event back in 1994 when my then 4-year-old son “oooed” and “ahhhed” over every truck, hose and piece of fire equipment. Firefighters, both on- and off-duty, were on hand to answer questions, give demonstrations and help kids as they used hoses to douse orange and red painted “flames” in the …
