Back-to-School Community Fun at Fire Department Open House
Learn more about children’s fire safety at Stockton Fire Station No. 7
Join the Stockton Fire Department to kick off back-to-school fire safety at an Open House at Fire Station No. 7, 1767 W. Hammer Lane, Saturday, August 25, 2018, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring the whole family for some fun and to learn about fire safety as kids get ready for another school year.
Visit the information table to learn how to keep children fire smart by posting emergency numbers on the fridge, installing smoke alarms, and doing fire drills so kids know where to go if the alarm ever sounds.
Plus, stop by the Open House to tour the station, talk with local fire fighters and other members of the Stockton Fire Department, enjoy free hot dogs and a jump house for kids, and watch a Jaws of Life demonstration in action. Kids can also learn more about smoke alarms at the Fire Safety Trailer. With a focus on family safety, representatives from the Stockton Police Department will offer free fingerprinting for children. Pick up giveaways at community information exhibits.
“With kids heading back to school, this is a great time to stop by the Open House at Station No. 7,” said Stockton Fire Chief Erik Newman. “Parents and children of all ages can benefit from tips on household fire safety. Often older kids are home before parents get home from work, so emergency numbers, fire alarms, and an escape plan are all important reminders to go over. Stop by and ask us any questions. We are here to help keep your family safe. Everyone is welcome.”
