Sierra Madre Fire Department invites the community to its 36th Annual Fire Prevention Festival.
By News Desk
This Fire Prevention Festival will take place on October 14, 2023, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at Sierra Madre Fire Station (242 West Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre). It promises to be an engaging experience for the whole community.
The Fire Prevention Festival is a family-friendly event aimed at raising awareness about fire safety and prevention.
This year’s festival will feature an array of exciting activities and informative demonstrations, including:
- Live Fire Safety Demonstrations: Firefighters and Faith Fire Protection Services will provide demonstrations for using a fire blanket and fire extinguisher to put out stove fires.
- Meeting the Goats: This year, we invited goats from Ventura Brush Goats Home and Range to the festival. Visitors can learn more about how goats are being used as a sustainable and economical alternative for removing fuel for wildfires.
- Meet Smokey Bear: Angeles National Forest and Smokey Bear will educate visitors on the importance of safe camp cooking.
- Fire Truck Tours: Explore SMFD’s state-of-the-art fire engines, water tender, and equipment up close.
This event is supported by: Athen’s Services, Code 3, San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments, Sierra Madre C.E.R.T., Sierra Madre Search and Rescue, Sierra Madre Police Department, and the Sierra Madre Public Library.
