Fire Department to hold open house in west Chandler on May 12
The Chandler Fire Department is holding a free open house for the public from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, 2012, at Fire Station No. 9 at 211 N. Desert Breeze Boulevard West. The event is part of the Department’s ongoing efforts to educate residents about the services provided by Chandler Fire, and to share safety, fire prevention and emergency preparedness information with the public.
In addition to tours of the station, there will also be fire truck & apparatus displays and demonstrations, drowning prevention information, and children will get hands on instruction on how to get out of a smoke filled environment at the Fire Safety House display. Department mascots will also be on hand, and free balloons, popcorn and fire helmets will be available for children.
Throughout the event, Fire Department staff will be on hand to talk about the Crisis Response volunteer program, Senior Volunteer program, Fire Cadet program, and Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT). This open house will also feature instruction on Hands-OnlyTM CPR, which when performed by a bystander has been shown to be as effective as “conventional” CPR in emergencies that occur at home, work or in public. There are only two steps to remember: Call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest.
Fire Station No. 9 is located just north of Chandler Boulevard between Rural and McClintock roads. For more information about the open house, please call 480-782-2120 or go online to www.chandleraz.gov/fire.
