The Clark County Fire Department will host its first open house of the new year from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, at Fire Station 23, 4250 E. Alexander Road near Lamb Boulevard.
The Fire Department hosts open houses with community partners every other month on Saturdays at different fire stations in the County. Station 23 is located in Commission District D, which is represented by Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly.
“These events are a great opportunity for residents to meet the firefighters who serve their neighborhoods and learn important safety information,” said Commissioner Weekly, who plans to attend the open house. “We encourage the whole family to come because children and adults alike can learn how to prevent house fires and injuries in a fun and educational environment.”
Participants at February’s open house are scheduled to include Safe Kids Coalition, Southern Nevada Child Drowning Prevention Coalition, Water Reclamation, the American Red Cross, Nevada Child Seekers, Trauma Intervention Program of Southern Nevada, Clark County School District Police, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s McGruff crime dog, and staff from the Clark County District Attorney’s Office, Recorder Office and Department of Business License.
The Fire Department’s fire safety house, which teaches children how to get out of their homes safely in case of fire, also will be at the event in addition to its popular “Captain Be Safe” inflatable firefighter character.
The next open house will be from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 6, at Fire Station 20, 5865 Judson St., near Nellis and East Lake Mead Boulevard.
