All-day activities (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.)
Fire station tours
Sit in a fire truck
10 a.m. — Landing of the air transport helicopter. Look inside a helicopter that serves on the Global Medical Response team that provides medical transportation for emergencies.
11 a.m. — Live burning demonstration. Come watch how quickly a small fire can spread and see firefighters put it out in the department's demonstration trailer.
1 p.m. — Vehicle extrication demonstration. Major car crashes sometimes leave passengers trapped inside the vehicle until the fire department can get them out. Watch as firefighters cut open a staged wrecked car as if someone was trapped inside.
