VFD Community Open House
Calling all junior firefighters! Respond to emergencies by first learning how to prepare for them!
Stop by our annual Victoria Fire Department Open House on Monday, September 18, 2023 between 5:30 and 8:00 p.m. for an interactive experience as you meet our local heroes and learn how you can prepare for fire emergencies at home! Hands-on activities hosted throughout the night include riding in a fire truck, trying out your skills with a fire hose, and making your way through a smokey house.
Safety demonstrations at the Fire Station will include showing how a real-life grease fire can get really big, really quickly, how the firefighters use the jaws of life to rescue occupants of a car, and how first responders can use a drone in the skies of Victoria to aid in identifying fire locations in a burning building as well as help with search and rescue operations.
Other free activities for the whole family include:
- Hot Dog Dinner Provided by Cornerstone Insurance Agency
- Fire Extinguishers Provided by Cornerstone Insurance Agency
- Public Safety Partner Tables
- Face Painting Provided by HomeTown Bank
