The Encinitas Fire Department hosted its annual Open House event Oct. 8 at Station 5.
The Open House kicked off National Fire Prevention Week, which took place from Oct. 9-15. This year's theme of "Don't Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years" focused on the importance of smoke alarm maintenance.
During the event, people of all ages had the opportunity to enjoy firefighter-led tours of Station 5 and paramedic-led tours of an ambulance, speak to Fire Department staff, try on firefighter gear and more.
