Sandy Springs Fire Rescue Open House

The Sandy Springs Fire Rescue Department is hosting an exciting event in our community. This years theme is, “Smoke Alarms, A Sound You Can Live With.” The event will be held in celebration of Fire Safety Week on Tuesday, October 5, 2010, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at all four of Sandy Springs Fire Stations:

Fire Station #1, 1425 Spalding Drive

Fire Station #2, 135 Johnson Ferry Road

Fire Station #3, 6025 Heards Road and

Fire Station #4, 4697 Wieuca Road

The City of Sandy Springs urges you to invite all of your elementary and middle school aged students and their siblings to this Open House to learn valuable fire safety lessons from Sandy Springs finest firefighters. They will teach children fire safety and prevention through enjoyable activities such as friendly firefighter and fire house presentations. The goal is to have fun while educating at the same time. Firefighters will cover topics such as EDITH (exit drills in the home), the meeting place, stop/drop/roll and various other fire safety topics. The Open House will also give the students a chance to interact with the firefighters while experiencing a small part of the roles and responsibilities of the firefighters. Station tours will also be available.

Fire Prevention Week is actively supported by fire departments across the country. For 85 years, fire departments have observed Fire Prevention Week as part of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). This makes the week the longest running public health and safety observance on record. We hope you will become part of this tradition.
