Chula Vista Fire Dept. Open House October 2, 2010
 
Chula Vista Fire Department’s annual open house for Fire Prevention Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 2. Features at this year’s event include live fire department demonstrations, fire equipment displays, and fire prevention exhibits. All of the activities will take place at Fire Station #4, located at 850 Paseo Ranchero in the Rancho del Rey neighborhood just north of East H Street.

“We invite members of our community to join us for this annual open house,” said Fire Chief Dave Hanneman. “In addition, we will give residents a first-hand look at some of our firefighting techniques and offer valuable fire prevention information.”

Firefighters, fire prevention personnel, and Fire Explorers will be participating in this special event. In addition, the event will include free blood pressure checks by A.M.R Ambulance Service and information booths from the Burn Institute, Rice Canyon Fire Safe Council, California Highway Patrol, Citizens Emergency Response Team (CERT), Citizens Adversity Support Team (CAST), and the American Red Cross, as well as free rides on the “Little Fire Truck.” Highlights for children will be the fire safety program in a specially designed “house”, and puppet shows demonstrating fire prevention and safety.

Chula Vista’s annual open house is scheduled during National Fire Prevention Week, which commemorates the Great Chicago Fire of Oct. 8,1871. This year’s campaign is entitled “Smoke Alarms: a sound you can live with.”

The Chula Vista Fire Department currently has nine stations located in all of the city’s major regions. Each year the department responds to more than 15,000 calls, ranging from medical aids to working fires. The department also has a very active fire prevention division which offers education for school classes, business safety inspections and conducts fire investigations. New to the fire prevention division is Cali, an accelerant detection canine.

To receive general fire information, call (619) 691-5055. For emergencies, call 9-1-1.
