Fire Saftey

"Fire engines and equipment will be on display to engage children in discussions on the importance of fire prevention."

In honor of Fire Prevention Awareness Week, Avondale firefighters will welcome the community into their “house” on Saturday, October 5.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to noon at Fire Station 172, 1825 N. 107th Avenue.

Learn valuable information about fire danger while enjoying food and fun for the entire family. Fire engines and equipment will be on display to engage children in discussions on the importance of fire prevention. Learn about emergency preparedness and home fire escape planning. Station tours will be available as well.

Free hot dogs, chips and ice cream will be available while supplies last.

The National Fire Protection Association has resources online, on behalf of National Fire Prevention Week.

Information is available at firepreventionweek.org. Educational information will also be provided at the open house event.
