The Lombard Fire Department is inviting residents to attend a community open house at Fire Station 45 at 50 E. St. Charles Rd., on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 6-8 p.m., in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 9-15.
The free open house will include fire safety education and the opportunity to get a closer look at Fire and EMS vehicles, and the apparatus involved in firefighting. This year’s Fire Prevention Week Theme, “Don’t wait, check the date”, is highlighting the importance of checking the expiration date on the back of smoke detectors. All smoke alarms need to be replaced when they are 10 years old or if they don’t respond when tested.
One grand prize raffle winner, who attends school in within Lombard school districts, will win a ride to school in a fire truck. To enter the raffle, bring non-perishable food items to the open house. Each item equals another chance to win, up to 10 entries per person. Items will be donated to the Lombard Villa Park Food Pantry.
Participants who purchased a pink shirt in early Sept. are invited to wear their shirts for a group photo with the Fire Department at 7 p.m. The pink shirts are sold annually to raise funds for the Good Samaritan Hospital’s Cancer Care Center.
The event is hosted by the Lombard Fire Department in partnership with ComEd, DuPage Public Safety Communications (DUCOMM), DuPage County Office of Emergency Management, Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, National Fire Sprinkler Association, Lombard Historical Society, Lombard Police Department, West Suburban Bank, and many others.
Anyone with questions about the event can contact Lombard Fire Lt. Tony Sally (630) 620-5736.
