Pancake Breakfast & Open House

2016 Fire Prevention Week Banner

Countryside Fire Protection District will host its Annual Pancake Breakfast and Open House on Sunday, October 9, 2016 from 8 a.m. to Noon at Station 2, 600 N. Deerpath Drive, Vernon Hills.

This event kicks off Countryside’s observance of Fire Prevention Week.  The theme for this year’s Fire Prevention Week is “DON’T WAIT: CHECK THE DATE! REPLACE SMOKE ALARMS EVERY 10 YEARS.” 

The cost for this all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast event will be $15 for the whole family or $5 a person.  In addition, the fire station will be open to the public for station tours, sitting in the fire trucks and plenty of safety information exhibits will be set up with handouts for all that attend.  What’s more, Record a Hit will have an inflatable crawl through fire truck for the children to practice in, Batteries Plus will be giving away batteries for smoke alarms, and our local Mark Havlic & Associtaes Allstate Insurance will be one hand to help promote “Be Cool About Fire Safety”–all this and much more!

This is an excellent family activity and a great opportunity to brush up on fire and life safety at home and in the community, so come meet your local firefighter/paramedics and check out all the equipment they have to use in an emergency.  For additional information, please contact Public Education Coordinator, Tony Rodkey at (847) 367-5511 or arodkey@countrysidefire.com.  We hope to see you there!
