In order to commemorate Fire Prevention Week, the St. Charles Fire Department will be hosting an open house at Fire Station #1, 112 N. Riverside Avenue on Saturday, October 15, from noon to 3pm. The members of the Fire Department would like to encourage everyone to stop by, talk with the firefighters and take a tour of the fire station. Several exhibitions will be held throughout the day including: fire extinguisher demonstrations, special rescue operations, and a live burn/sprinkler demonstration. The purpose of the burn is to demonstrate how effective residential sprinklers can be in combating home fires. There will be activities for children and refreshments will be available. Many informational displays will also be presented for department programs and general safety concerns. The Fire Department would like to acknowledge the generous financial support from Lowes and all of the companies that will be participating at this year’s event.
