The St. Charles Fire Department is hosting an open house at Fire Station #1, 112 N. Riverside Avenue, on Saturday, October 15, 2022, from noon to 3 p.m. to commemorate Fire Prevention Week. The theme this year, “Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape!”, highlights the simple but important actions everyone can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires.
Everyone is invited to stop by the Open House, talk with the firefighters, and learn about fire safety.
Several exhibitions will be held throughout the day including:
- Fire extinguisher demonstrations
- Special rescue operations
- A live burn/sprinkler demonstration, which demonstrates how effective residential sprinklers can be in combating residential house fires.
Activities for children and refreshments also will be available, along with informational displays on department programs and general fire safety concerns. Click here for more details about Fire Prevention Week.
