East Pierce Fire & Rescue is giving its district residents on the outskirts a chance to learn more about the department.
On Saturday, March 26, the department will be hosting an open house at the Prairie Ridge fire station from 9 a.m. to noon.
A second open house will be hosted April 2 at the Foothills station, also from 9 a.m. to noon.
Community members will be able to meet firefighters, tour the stations and learn more about the inner workings of a fire department.
“We will have fun, interactive displays and opportunities for kids to have their photos taken on the fire engines and Medic units,” said East Pierce Fire Chief Bud Backer. “This is a great opportunity to learn more about your fire department and find out what it may look like in five years.”
Backer also announced that, after a hiatus last year due to budget cuts, the fire department has scheduled its annual Open House in Bonney Lake for Saturday, October 1.
