Everyone is invited to attend and meet their local firefighters.
The public will be able to tour the fire station and view the fire trucks, equipment and gear close up. Children will be able to visit the fire safety simulator, where they will learn important lessons about how to prevent fires and escape safely in an emergency situation. The Storm Lake Fire Department obtained the simulator unit earlier this year.
A live fire sprinkler unit demonstration will take place at 1 p.m.
Firefighters will demonstrate the Jaws of Life tools at 2 p.m., showing how trapped accident victims are rescued from a vehicle.
A helicopter ambulance will be landing on site at 3 p.m., conditions permitting.
Throughout the event, free educational materials will be available to both adults and children.
Make plans today to come to the Storm Lake Fire Department Open House October 21. Learn about your fire department and how to keep your home safe.
