Grand Lake Fire Department to host open house, barbecue

Special to the Sky-Hi News
Grand Lake, CO Colorado

Grand Lake Fire Protection District will be hosting its annual Open House and Community BBQ on Oct. 5 to celebrate Fire Prevention Week.

There will be activities and giveaways for all ages; station tours, information on wildfire mitigation, escape planning, a complimentary community barbecue and refreshments. Smokey Bear and Sparky the Fire Dog, along with representatives from other local agencies, will share what they do for the community.

Thanks to some help from federal grants, parents can earn free smoke detectors, and kids can earn a bundle of give-aways including fire hats, key chains, erasers, stickers, magnets, rulers, pencils, yo-yos and a special prize upon certificate completion.

The Open House will take place at the Town Fire Station, 201 West Portal, from 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5. Stop by and learn more about how to keep homes and children “fire safe.” Or just stop by for a free barbecue and to say hello. Call 627-8428 with questions.
