Tour A Lakeshore Fire Station On Wednesday

Monday October 10th, 2022, 3:50pm


The Lakeshore Fire Department will open its doors on Wednesday, October 12th in celebration of Fire Prevention Week.

The family-friendly Open Houses, to take place at all five Lakeshore fire stations from 6:00pm to 8:30pm, will give visitors the opportunity to learn important fire prevention and home safety tips, meet local firefighters, and check out fire trucks and equipment.

“Fire Prevention Week serves as an important reminder of the small things that people can do to make their homes safer,” said Lakeshore Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Pulleyblank. “We are also excited to welcome visitors of all ages to learn from our talented and knowledgeable firefighters.”

The theme of this year’s Fire Prevention Week, which runs from October 9th to 15th, is “Fire Won’t Wait, Plan Your Escape.” The theme highlights the importance of preparing and practicing escape routes in case of a fire or other emergency.

During that week, Lakeshore firefighters will hit the road for a day-long parade to all ten grade schools within the Municipality. Students will have the opportunity to learn the sounds of fire safety and interact with firefighters from a safe distance.

  • Station 1 – 1031 County Road 22, Emeryville
  • Station 2 – 1465 Lakeshore Road 203, Maidstone
