Each year at the start of National Fire Prevention Week, the week of October 9th, the fire department hosts an open house at each of our six fire stations. The intent of the open house is to bring awareness to fire safety and commemorate the anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The TFD opens our doors so that the community can tour the fire stations, see the equipment, and learn about fire safety and prevention through talking with firefighters and watching demonstrations.
Open House is held on the Sunday preceding October 9th, from 1PM to 4PM. Watch for a schedule of events in the fall. We'd love to see you!
