Hundreds Turn Out For Everett Fire Open House

Everett Fire

Station 5 was host for the open house.

To mark the start of Fire Prevention Week the Everett Fire Department held an open house at Fire Station 5. Hundreds turned out of the course of four and a half hours to check out displays, practice an escape plan, see demonstrations of high performance CPR and tools used to free people trapped in vehicles.

Kids were also invited to take the Junior Firefighter Challenge. The crowd also enjoyed free pizza courtesy of Dominoes at 7601 Evergreen Way and at the end community members “rolled in” the newest Engine for Everett Fire. Here are some photos of the activities. Click on photo to enlarge.
