Post Date:10/11/2017 4:30 PM
The Village of Hoffman Estates Fire Department will host free open houses from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on both Sunday, Oct. 15 and Saturday, Oct. 21. The Oct. 15 open house will be held on the north side of Hoffman Estates at Fire Station 23, located at 1300 Westbury Drive. The Oct. 21 open house will be at Fire Station 21, 225 Flagstaff Lane, near Chino Park.

The open houses are being held in support of Fire Prevention Week, which runs Oct. 8 through Oct. 14. Learn about the importance of developing and practicing a home escape plan to stay safe in case of a home fire. There will also be plenty of family-friendly activities to enjoy: tour the stations, meet Sparky the Fire Dog, and explore fire trucks and ambulances. The event on Saturday, Oct. 21 may even feature a visit from a life-saving helicopter!

For more information on the open houses or other local fire prevention and education opportunities, contact the Hoffman Estates Fire Department at 847-843-4825.

The Fire Department also encourages residents to visit the National Fire Protection Association’s website at www.nfpa.org for information on Fire Prevention Week and tips for developing a home escape plan. In a fire, every second counts!
