|Chief Rhino to the Rescue by Sam Lloyd (Henry Holt)|
You're Invited!If you're looking for something fun and interesting to do on the afternoon of Saturday, October 13, come to the Fire Department Open House!
Between noon and 4:00 p.m., stop by Fire Station 1 (400 NW Harrison) or Locke Station (544 NW Lewisburg Avenue) - or visit both of them.
You can tour the stations, take a close look at fire engines and other apparatus, meet the firefighters, and watch them demonstrate various aspects of their jobs. There will be a number of events geared toward children, such as the opportunity to meet Sparky (the fire dog) and Pluggie (the electronic fire hydrant), spray water from a fire hose, go through the challenge course, slide the fire pole, and attend a puppet show.
Fire engine rides and REACH Air Ambulance will be available at Locke Station. Those who visit Station 1 will be able to simulate entering a burning building and attacking a fire through Wii-based technology.
It will be a great time, and we hope to see you there!!
