Fire Prevention Week and Alhambra Fire Department Open House and Pancake Breakfast

In a fire, mere seconds can mean the difference between a safe escape and a tragedy. It’s important for every member of the community to take some time to make sure they understand how to stay safe in case of a fire. Create a home escape plan. Everyone needs to be prepared in advance, so that they know what to do when the smoke alarm sounds.   

Fire Prevention Week is observed from October 9 – 15, 2022. This year’s theme is “Fire Won’t Wait. Plan Your Escape.” Please visit the National Fire Protection Association’s website for safety information, including how to put a Family Action Plan together.

To increase fire safety awareness, the Alhambra Fire Department, in conjunction with the Alhambra Firefighters Association will be hosting an open house & pancake breakfast on Saturday, October 15, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The event will be held at Alhambra Fire Station 71, 301 North First Street in Alhambra.

Alhambra Firefighters will cook and serve breakfast for all those attending. The open house will include fire safety information handouts, fire station tours, and fire department rescue vehicle and equipment demonstrations. Kids attending the breakfast will have an opportunity to meet and take pictures with Sparky the Fire Dog. Educational coloring books, Junior firefighter helmets and badge stickers will also be available for kids, while supplies last.

The breakfast and all events at the open house are free of charge. Donations will be accepted by the Alhambra Firefighters’ Association. Proceeds from this year’s event will go toward purchasing essential equipment for the Alhambra Fire Department Explorer and Cadet Programs. These programs encourage, train and mentor aspiring firefighters.
