Fire Department open house

The Alhambra Volunteer Fire Department will kick off National Fire Prevention Week with an open house 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6.

Tour the fire house, get a chance to see inside a real fire truck and ambulance. See how the equipment works.

Enjoy complimentary hot dogs and chili, coffee and tea. Sign up for attendance prizes.

Weather permitting, children will receive free rides on an antique fire truck.

National Fire Safety Week is Oct. 7-13

The Alhambra Fire Department will visit Alhambra Primary at 9 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 11.

Firemen will present a fire safety program and allow them to see the fire truck and ask questions about the different items on the truck and the gear each fireman is required to wear.

Weather permitting, the Highland Hospital ARCH helicopter will land just south of the school. Community residents may park on the Firemen Park road to view the landing, but are asked not to approach the helicopter due to the limited time for the children’ s viewing.
