South City Fire holds open house, carnival
September 25, 2012, 05:00 AM

Fire departments across the country use the anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire (Oct. 8, 1871) to raise awareness of fire safety and fire prevention.  

This year’s fire prevention theme is "Have Two Ways Out!” focusing on the importance of fire escape planning and practice. To kick off this year’s Fire Prevention Month, South San Francisco Fire Department will host its annual open house and carnival from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.Saturday, Sept. 29 at Fire Station 61, 480 N. Canal St., South San Francisco. 

It will be a fun filled day starting with a pancake breakfast for $3. There will be station house tours, safety demonstrations, carnival rides for $1 and carnival games for 50 cents. A hot dog lunch will be cooked and served by firefighters for $3. There will be educational, family-oriented activities and residents can learn more about the importance of fire escape planning and practice, as well as the power of prevention.

Throughout October the South San Francisco Fire Department will be visiting every elementary school in South San Francisco. Firefighters will bring educational materials, hands-on demonstrations of fire safety and help school children identify "Two Ways Out” from their homes in case of fire.
