On Saturday October 6, 2018, the West Covina Fire Department (WCFD) hosted our 1st Annual Fire Prevention Week Open House! The event coincided with National Fire Prevention Week, a tradition that started in 1925 that's held the 2nd week of October each year. Last year's campaign was "Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere."
This year, the 2nd Annual Fire Prevention Week is scheduled for Saturday, October 5, 2019 from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at Fire Station No. 2 (2441 E. Cortez Street). The open house is free to attend and attendees can watch WCFD personnel demonstrating various life saving techniques, participate in fun events for the whole family, and purchase breakfast items from the Fire Explorers, staffed by volunteers (age 15-21) who want to pursue a career in the fire service! In addition, the community will be asked to judge poster contest submissions from local 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes. To learn more about the open house, please contact the Fire Administration office at (626) 939-8824. We hope to see you there!
