Open House 2009 - October 17th

The members of Grand Forks Fire Rescue held the third annual Open House at Station 4 (2nd Street, downtown Grand Forks) on Saturday, October 17th.

We showed some of our rescue techniques, and had interactive demonstrations that lots of people tried out for themselves.

Fire truck rides were available, and some tried out our fire extinguisher simulator, some of the public as well as some of our local paramedics tried on a set of bunker gear and an air pack to see what it really feels like to be suited up for a call.

2nd street was closed in front of the fire hall during the Open House, and we had some of the trucks on display along with a couple of our antique apparatus. Our Rescue trucks were also set up to show an auto rescue (with help from two volunteers from the crowd and BCAS) and we had our Ladder truck set up to simulate high-angle rope rescue.

We also had our new just-arrived-from-the-printers 2010 calendars on sale.

BC Ambulance Service, BC Forest Service, C.C. Helicopters and Mid-Nytes Towing were also be on hand with there own displays.

We sure hope you had a chance to come down to Station 4 on Saturday to check out everything we had on display! If not make sure to check us out next fall.
