The Battle Creek Fire Department invites our community to its eighth Fire Prevention Week open house, set for 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14.

We invite everyone this year to Station 2, at 145 N Washington Ave. Enjoy hot dogs, games, tours of this historic station, checking out our fire equipment, and prize drawings.

Our annual open house event caps National Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 8-14, the National Fire Protection Association’s educational campaign held every October. This year’s theme is, “Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire prevention.”

Cooking can bring family and friends together, provide an outlet for creativity, and be relaxing. But did you know that cooking fires are the No. 1 cause of home fires and home injuries? When you’re cooking, stay alert, stay in the kitchen, and use a timer to remind you that your oven or stove is on.

City neighbors also are invited to the Fire Prevention Week open house event that includes Battle Creek and other local fire and public safety agencies. This event is Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 5-8 p.m. at the Pennfield Family Fare store, 1603 Capital Ave. NE.

As always, city fire crews will visit Battle Creek, Lakeview, and other kindergarten classes throughout the week to educate students about the theme, and help them feel comfortable with firefighters, especially when they’re in full gear. Please ask your kindergartners about this visit!

We hope you will join us on Wednesday and Saturday to learn more, and meet our great Fire Department team!
