Fire Safety Week is being recognized this month with an open house tomorrow at the Alton Fire Department Don Twitchell Memorial Fire Station on E. 20th Street. The theme of this year's Fire Prevention Week is "Have Two Ways Out." It has been a couple of years since the fire department has hosted an open house, but new Fire Chief Bernie Sebold (pictured) says he hopes the public will come out to meet the staff and check out the equipment and displays.
There will be free chili, hotdogs, chips and soda, you can meet Sparky the Fire Dog, go through the smoke house, and win attendance prizes. The open house runs from Noon-4pm.
