Showing how it is done

From left, Perry Township Firefighter Hannah Fast, Firefighter/EMT Tim Chamberlain, Capt./EMT Brandon Smith and Assistant Chief Dave Panezott demonstrate how they use spreaders, cutters and rams to open up a vehicle at the scene of a crash. The all-volunteer department hosted a pancake breakfast Saturday morning, then an open house to show residents what they do, answer questions, give lessons on fire extinguisher use and display their fire trucks and other equipment. Sinsley Towing donated two vehicles and Antram Fire Equipment donated fire extinguishers for demonstrations. (Salem News photo by Mary Ann Greier)
