Central Crossing Fire Protection District will be hosting their annual open house on Saturday, October 26th at the headquarters building located at 23463 St Hwy 39. The department will be displaying the apparatus and equipment used in protecting and serving the community. You can enjoy a hot dog while you visit with the firefighters and first responders from 11 am to 2 pm.
CCFPD is working in partnership with the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition through a federal Fire Prevention & Safety Grant to demonstrate a special fire and sprinkler burn which will take place at 1 pm. A dramatic demonstration will display firsthand how a home fire can become deadly in three minutes or less. There will be a side-by-side comparison which will show the danger of fire and the value of having a fire sprinkler system installed. Two structures have been built to simulate the room and contents of a typical home. Each room will contain common furnishings, window treatments and a working smoke alarm. Only one room contains a fire sprinkler. The demonstration will allow spectators to gain an appreciation for fire power and realize what an incredible advantage it is to have a fire sprinkler system installed if fire breaks out.
CCFPD received financial support and assistance in building the structures from Meeks Lumber. Other organizations and individuals generously donated additional items relevant to the burn demonstration. Many thanks to all that made this possible!
Smoke detectors are vital in the home and will also be available to the residents of the District. Plan to attend the open house, enjoy a quick lunch and observe the fireman at work as they demonstrate how quickly a fire can spread in a home. Firemen and first responders will be on hand to display the fleet of trucks and answer your questions. This is an opportunity to see what you have provided for the community through your tax dollars. Hope to see you Saturday, October 26th, 11 am to 2 pm!
