Rocky’s Ace Hardware Offering Free Fire Safety And Grilling Demo Event Oct. 19

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 locations, including the one at 13837 Wellington Trace in the Wellington Marketplace. The free events will be held on Saturday, Oct. 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,” Rocky’s Ace Hardware President & CEO Rocco Falcone said. “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,” Falcone said. “We’ll help everyone let their inner grill master shine all year long.”

From one modest store to now 34 convenient locations throughout Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, Rocky′s has become one of the country’s largest Ace Hardware dealers, noted for its exceptional customer service and vast product selection.
