Fire Department
Open House Oct. 9

Firefighting isn’t a job; it’s a lifestyle – and the Burnsville Fire Department will be providing an inside look during their annual open house.

What:       Open House
Who:        Everyone is invited to attend
When:      Thursday, Oct. 9 | 5:30-8 p.m.
Where:     Fire Station 1, 911 140th St. W. 

Visitors can climb aboard fire trucks, ambulances and police cars; try on helmets, boots and other fire gear; tour the fire station; watch interactive demonstrations; and meet firefighters and other public safety personnel.

This year’s open house will feature a new kitchen fire prevention trailer, which was donated to the Dakota County Fire Chiefs Association this past spring. Demonstrations in the trailer will show first-hand how dangerous kitchen fires can be—like how a cup of water poured on a small grease fire can cause a major catastrophe. Fire Department presenters will use the opportunity to explain how these fires can be safely extinguished and prevented.

A second trailer will allow kids to experience what it’s like to navigate safely through a smoke-filled room. Additional demonstrations and information will be provided by Burnsville’s Heart Restart Program and Community Emergency Response Team.

National Fire Prevention Week

The Burnsville Fire Department Open House is held in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week (FPW), occurring this year from Oct. 5-11. The 2014 FPW theme is “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives—Test Yours Every Month." Watch the Burnsville Fire Department's video on the importance of working smoke alarms.
