As part of Fire Prevention Week Prospect Heights firefighters will be hosting an Open House on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the main fire station at 10 East Camp McDonald Road in Prospect Heights.

Every year, the Prospect Heights Fire District opens its doors to the community to showcase their equipment and facilities. The event helps fire district personnel educate the community on the importance of fire safety and prevention in their homes. The Open House coincides with National Fire Prevention Week, which this year runs October 8th through the 14th and locally commemorates the Great Chicago Fire, which occurred from Sunday, October 8, to early Tuesday, October 10, 1871.

Nationwide, those in the fire industry will promote ways to boost fire prevention awareness and safety during the week. This year’s theme is “Every Second Counts”. During Fire Prevention Week, firefighters spend time visiting schools and community groups to help teach awareness. The weeklong event ends with the Fire District’s invitation to residents to join in the fun at the main fire station (10 East Camp McDonald Road) for the annual open house.

This year firefighters will demonstrate various elements that residents can employ to exit the home quickly and safely, teach children to do it on their own in case you can’t help, clearly visible house numbers among many other important safety tips. In addition, children will be able to have some fun taking a slide down the fire pole, helping put out a ‘fire’ at the squirt house, dressing up as a firefighter and getting a color photo to take home! A free hot dog lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Prospect Heights firefighters are looking forward to seeing residents and families at the main fire station Saturday, October 14, 2017.
