Fairfield Glade Fire Department Open House set

CROSSVILLE — Fairfield Glade residents are encouraged to stop by their neighborhood fire station Saturday, Oct. 5, to meet the firefighters and take a tour of the facility.

The fire department is hosting "Open House at the Fire House" from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in recognition of National Fire Prevention Week. National Fire Prevention Week theme this year is "Smoke Alarms: A sound you can live with."

"National Fire Prevention Week focuses on promoting fire safety and prevention throughout the year," Fire Chief Howard Robb said in a prepared statement. "We encourage our residents to stop by our fire station to meet the men and women who work every day to protect them and their families."

On Saturday, residents can take a tour of the station and learn about the equipment used by firefighters and what a firefighter's job entails. There will be chances for adults and children to climb inside a fire truck, so families are welcome to attend. Visitors will be allowed to take photographs if they wish.

It is a chance for residents to meet their neighborhood firefighters in a non-emergency setting, which is rare. Refreshments will be served.
