At 7 p.m. this evening, the Keyport Fire Department will hold a training session, known internally as a drill, at the location above. In cooperation with all Borough departments and the owners of the property, the drill will be centered on the vacant building. KFD members will “respond” to a simulated situation requiring the implementation of a command structure and other various aspects of firefighting. These training sessions serve as a refresher and provide hands on experience for newer members.
There is no major impact anticipated for the public, who is welcomed to watch from a safe location. Kindly keep in mind this area of West Front Street is on a curve. Your safety is our first concern. Vehicle traffic will not be stopped for this exercise however there will be some congestion. Use proper crosswalks and park only where allowed.
Thanking you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
