2011 Open House & Fire Prevention Week
Annual Open House October 12th 6-8pm
2011 Open house is sure to be the biggest and best so far. We will have our second annual sprinkler house demostration thansk to grant that we recievied last year through The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition. We had a great turn out last year and we hope to see even more this year. If you were unable to make it last year this demostration allows you to see the difference's that fire sprinklers can have on a fire in your house. Again this year we will focus on the importance of having an exit plan, smoke alarm detection, and we will have the non-sprinklered room act as real life situation in which we will dispatch the fire department to the structure to give a realistic time frame for detection to extinguishment. We will also have a meal, lots of goodies for the whole family, kids games with prizes, and the kid favorite fire truck rides. We hope to see everyone there!
