Fire Prevention Week was October 6 thru October 12th. With a kids ride to school contest and firefighters and first responders preaching the safety in the home. This years theme was cooking safety.

On October 12, 2013 at # 7 fire station 1419 W Maple Grove Road from 11:00-2:00 there will be an open house. There will be free BBQ tours of the fire station, a chance for kids to spray fire hose and demonstrations with the new kitchen fire safety trailer!

It's a great time to ask questions about home safety, get to know the firefighters, and if you or your child is thinking of a first responder career, a great time to see what their job looks like.
