For Immediate Release: October 6, 2017
On Saturday, October 14, in recognition of National Fire Prevention Week, all Alexandria Fire Stations will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. During this free event, each station will open their doors to the community, providing family-friendly activities, station and fire apparatus tours, and fire prevention information and materials. Personnel at each station will be available to answer questions about their facility, equipment, and the Fire Department.
