Fire Safety Open House
North Metro Fire Rescue District capped off the 2019 Fire Prevention Week with the annual Fire Safety Open House at Station 63 on October 12th, 2019. Members of the community were invited to come out and learn about fire safety. Kids were given a tour through a safety house and learned about fire hazards in the home from hot pans on the stove to fire places and matches. After learning these safety tips, the smoke detector in the house would go off and kids were taught to safely crawl out off a burning house and get to safety. Once safe, another booth taught kids how to call 911 and give the operator their address and phone number. Adults were asked about smoke detectors in the home and those who didn’t have one in their bedrooms were given one free off charge. Firefighters gave tours of Engine 63 and Medic 63 where people were shown the tools and medical equipment firefighters use. A BBQ lunch was provided.
