EL CENTRO, Calif. - The El Centro Fire Department will host their annual Fire Safety Open House on Oct. 7th to kick off the National Fire Prevention Week.
The Fire Department is inviting residents of all ages.
There will be live fire extinguishment demonstrations, a smoke-filled bedroom exercise, an obstacle course for the younger, next generation firefighters and much more.
“This is a great time to become educated with fire safety; not only on how to prevent it, but what to do in case of a real fire. It is an opportunity to meet the firefighters, ask us questions and see what we do as a department,” said Fire Engineer Jason Bandaruk.
The event will start at 10 a.m. with the displays and demonstrations lasting until 2 p.m.
