Vail Fire Department to host Saturday open house event

Vail Fire and Emergency Services is inviting community members to stop by the West Vail Fire Station, 2399 North Frontage Road, for an open house from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5

The family-friendly event will include activities for guests of all ages including station tours, equipment displays and a kids’ obstacle course in recognition of National Fire Prevention Week. Activities will also include fire safety information on smoke alarms, exit drills and carbon monoxide alarms presented by the fire prevention division. Free hot dogs and chips will be served.

National Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 6-12. This year’s theme is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape — Plan and Practice your Escape.” The national campaign encourages everyone to create a home escape plan and practice it.

According to Fire Chief Mark Novak, “Planning and practicing a home escape route is important since you typically have only one to two minutes to escape from a fire in the home.”
