2018 Fire Prevention Displays and Open Houses

Every year, since 1922, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has celebrated National Fire Prevention Week, during the Sunday-Saturday in which October 9th falls.  October 9 is the date the the "Great Chicago Fire" did the most damage, fires also did mass devastation in Peshtigo, Wisconsin and across Michigan.  The NFPA also chooses a theme for the week, this year's theme is "Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware, fire can happen anywhere."
Fire departments do a variety of public education displays at schools, fire stations, businesses, etc to raise awareness of why fire safety is important and to showcase the equipment they use, answer questions, and let kids (big and small) try out the various equipment.
Most fire department open houses include some sort of demonstration (vehicle extrication, fire attack, rappelling, etc), a variety of emergency vehicles on display, freebies for the kids, etc.  Some of the open houses may include some food (breakfast, hot dogs, cookies, etc), a helicopter, bounce house, and more. Check with your local fire department for more information.
Below is a list of fire department open houses from across the state that I have been able to compile.  If your local FD is not listed, check with them to see if they will be having one.  If you know of one that's not listed feel free to share it with me as well and as time allows I will update the list. 
Feel free to share with others.
