Fire Station Open House Offers Summer Safety Info | Community Spirit
The local community is invited to a Clark County Fire Department open house on Saturday, April 28.
It will take place at Fire Station 23, 4250 E. Alexander Road near Lamb Boulevard, from noon to 3 p.m.
Station 23 is located in Commission District D, which includes downtown Las Vegas and the central valley. Visitors can meet the firefighters who serve their neighborhoods and tour the fire station.
“We will have information available in English and Spanish from a fire safety campaign called `No Child Left Alone.’ Now that spring is here, it's also a good time of year to remind the public to be cautious around hot barbecue grills so no injuries occur and to remember that drownings can be prevented by keeping a watchful eye on children any time they are near pools,” said Clark County Fire Chief Bertral Washington.
Clark County’s Fire and Building departments are sponsors of the Health District’s annual ABC&D’s of Drowning Prevention campaign, which emphasizes the need for adult supervision and barriers around swimming pools to prevent drownings.
Participating agencies at the upcoming open house include Southern Nevada Child Drowning Prevention Coalition, Southern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross, Nevada Child Seekers, Nevada Healthy Homes, and staff from Clark County Business License and the Clark County Fire Department Explorers. 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 and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s McGruff crime dog.
