Saint Paul-- The Saint Paul Fire Department will be hosting fun and educational open houses for Fire Prevention Week today, Saturday, from noon until 3 p.m. at three of their stations.
Open houses will include tours, meet and greet with Saint Paul firefighters and paramedics, and even live demonstrations. Demonstrations will teach kitchen fire safety (weather permitting) and how to prevent building fires in Minnesota.
Those attending will also be able to sign-up for Project Safe Heaven, a voluntary self-inspection of your home that includes a visit from a nearby fire station. The station will go over your inspection and even provides you with free smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, and stovetop fire extinguishers.
This year's Fire Prevention Week theme is "Have 2 Ways Out." The theme is set out to promote everyone having at least two ways out of each room in the case of a fire.
The three stations holding open houses are located at:
- Station #1, 1000 W. 7th St. (cooking safety demonstration at 12:30 p.m.)
- Station #4, 505 Payne Ave. (demonstration at 1:30 p.m.)
- Station #22, 225 Front Ave. (demonstration at 2:30 p.m.)
