Open Houses at fire stations conclude Fire Prevention Week

Preventing fires is as important as fighting them when they occur. And since prevention starts at home, Camano Island Fire and Rescue is participating once again in Fire Prevention Week beginning October 6 and concluding with an open house at four stations.

The public is welcome at Fire Stations 2, 3, 4 and 5 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 12.
• Station 2 – Country Club, 1326 Elger Bay Road
• Station 3 – Terry’s Corner, 525 E. North Camano Drive
• Station 4 – Vista Madrona, 273 N. West Camano Drive
• Station 5 – Mabana, 3651 South Camano Drive

Fire Prevention Week commemorates one of the nation’s most devastating fires – the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres.

Started in 1920 with a proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson, Fire Prevention Week is the longest running public health and safety observance on record.
