For many years, our Fire Department has hosted an Open House during Fire Prevention Week, the week of October 9, with fun and educational displays and demonstrations in the station and on the training grounds.  This event has traditionally brought an outpouring of support from our community and we always look forward to it every year.  This year, due to the unprecedented times and to protect the safety of our community and firefighters, we are unable to host this year’s event in-person.

In lieu of our traditional Open House, team members from the entire Fire Department including the Community Emergency Response Team, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Prevention, Fire Suppression, and Marine Safety are creating a Virtual Open House.  This virtual format will allow our residents an up-close and personal look at the amazing things our department does for the community.  

The Virtual Open House is also an opportunity to promote this year’s fire prevention theme, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!”  According to the National Fire Prevention Association, cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries in the United States. Almost half (44%) of reported home fires started in the kitchen. Two-thirds (66%) of home cooking fires start with the ignition of food or other cooking materials.

During Fire Prevention Week, the Fire Department will be sharing videos and fire prevention messaging through various social media channels, a newly created Virtual Open House website, Surf City 3, and YouTube. Please continue to follow our social media channels as we continue to make more announcements and provide information so that you can stay involved with this year’s Virtual Open House.
