Annual Fall Open House and NEW Station Tour

The City of Monroe Fire Department is hosting its annual Fall Open House for National Fire Prevention Week at the NEW Fire Station No.1 located at 911 East Third Street.  This is your opportunity to tour the brand new facility!

Members of the general public are invited Saturday, October 5th, from noon to 3 PM.

Special activities will be particularly geared towards family participation, including an inflatable bouncer, trying on fire fighter gear, putting out a 'fire' with the hose, practicing with a fire extinguisher simulator, and special give-aways for children. Other activities include station tours and photo ops. Staff will be on hand to discuss issues of fire safety, demonstrate equipment use, etc.

Back by popular demand: a Coloring Contest for children 6th grade and under! Grand prize winner is a bicycle donated by Jack's Bicycles in Downtown Monroe, Michigan.  

Complementary seasonal refreshments of cider and doughnuts will also be available.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend to meet and greet neighborhood emergency response personnel.

National Fire Prevention Week is observed in the United States and Canada each year during the week of October 9th in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage. The first Presidential proclamation of Fire Prevention Week was made in 1925 by President Calvin Coolidge.
