A burning issue to be addressed in Crystal Lake

October 3, 2013 by  

The Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department is hosting an open house this weekend, which will bring with it an opportunity for people to come out and learn about what contribution the fire services make to the area.

This is an educational and interactive learning event designed for the entire family. There will be static displays of ambulances, fire engines, and other equipment used by the services. The fire station tour will include the safety house, rescue demonstrations, the flight for life helicopter, and a firefighter skills class for children.

There will be fire extinguisher practice and fire hose drills for children and adults, a live burn using a trailer with sprinklers on one side and no sprinklers on the other, plus refreshments to enjoy. This event is designed to provide family members with ways they can protect their homes and families from being ravished by fire, with local print companies and stationery printers likely to have been consulted in search of printed literature for attendees to take home with them, helping them to put what they have learned into practice in safeguarding their home against fire.

Admission to this event is free to everyone. The open house will be held on Saturday, October 5, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Woodstock Street station in Crystal Lake, Illinois. To learn more about this event, please visit the Crystal Lake website or call the Fire Department itself (on the non-emergency number) during regular business hours.
