West Metro Fire-Rescue District’s Open House Celebrates 25 Years of Service
The West Metro Fire-Rescue District will opens its doors for their annual open house on July 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Fire Station #3. The department will also be celebrating 25 years of dedicated service in the northwest metro area.
One of the highlights of the open house will be a live fire demonstration where visitors can watch firefighters combat a controlled fire. In addition to the fire demonstration, there will also be a vehicle extrication and a ladder truck rescue.
There will be plenty to do for the kids, including a specially designed obstacle course to test their agility and coordination.
“It’s kind of a small version of the things that we do for our physical testing so they get to do it on a kid’s level and it’s a lot of fun,” said Assistant Chief Joel Nelson, West Metro Fire-Rescue District.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet and talk with real-life firefighters, as well as get an up-close look at the fire trucks and inspect firefighter gear and equipment. New this year to the open house is the addition of food trucks. There will also be a kids DJ playing lively music.
