Seminole’s Fire Station 29 to Host Open House

SEMINOLE — Seminole Fire Rescue will host its annual open house at Fire Station 29, 11195 70th Ave. N., Sunday, Feb. 10, 12 to 3 p.m.

“The goal is to connect residents from across the Seminole Fire District with the responders who serve the community every day,” said Chief Heather Burford. “It’s a chance for the public to personally meet the firefighters and first responders while learning a little about the services we provide, fire prevention, crime prevention, and injury avoidance.”

The family-friendly event is designed “to be fun, interactive and educational for kids of all ages,” she added.

The open house will kick off with an opening ceremony at noon. There will be a number of activities throughout the day including games, a bounce house, the chance to meet Sparky the fire dog and presentations on fire safety and injury prevention. A vehicle extrication demonstration will take place at 2:30 p.m.

There will also be a number of giveaways, and free refreshments served, including hot dogs and popcorn.

Members of the city of Seminole CERT team will provide new helmets to children while supplies last.
