Do you know where your nearest fire station is located?

Maybe you’ve driven past one, but on Saturday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., you’re invited to stop in and visit. All 38 stations will be open and the focus on this year’s national theme of, “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep; Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoking Alarm.”


Firefighters will have displays and activities spotlighting fire and life safety, including preventing fires and fire injuries, especially in the home. You are encouraged to visit your nearest station to participate and learn more about fire safety. Firefighters will also offer tours of the station, and educate you (and, of course, children!) about various fire trucks and equipment.
