Fire Open House
Fire department open house | Public Safety Building
OCT 14 | 11 am-2 PM
The Columbia Heights Fire Department will host its annual Fire Prevention Open House on Oct 14 as part of Fire Prevention Week, Oct 8-14. This year’s FPW campaign “Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire prevention” works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take when cooking to keep themselves and those around them safe. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, 49% of home fires are caused by cooking, showing there is still much work to do when it comes to educating the public about how to stay safe when cooking. To promote fire safety, Columbia Heights Fire would like to invite you to the Public Safety Building's fire station Oct 14. Kids, young and old, can spray a real fire hose, meet dalmatians, enjoy free ice cream, watch a fire demonstration, meet local firefighters, and more!
