In conjunction with Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 8 - 14), the Bellevue Fire Department opened the doors to all nine stations on Saturday, Oct. 14. The annual open houses give the public an opportunity to meet the firefighters who serve them, see station apparatus and trucks and pick up valuable safety information.
Refreshments were served and children received stickers and red hats from the firefighters. If you missed the open house, the Fire Department makes all stations available for tours upon request. You can find your nearest station by clicking here, or calling Lt. Bruce Kroon, community liaison officer, at 425-452-6995.
The open houses Saturday were more than tours. Visiting Nurse Services of the Northwest provided flu shots at several stations, and non-perishable food was collected for a Hopelink food drive.
During Fire Prevention Week, Bellevue firefighters read to children at three King Count libraries in Bellevue.
