While Austin’s newest fire truck won’t be ready for view this week, plenty of others will be during 2012 Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 7-13.minority
The Austin Fire Department, as usual, will make its rounds to area schools throughout the week to talk about fire safety and how some of the department’s equipment works.
But for those who aren’t in school or can’t make it, the Austin Fire Department will hold its open house from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10 at the fire station. Trucks will be on display, along with firefighting equipment and firehose games for children. More events may be held outside, weather permitting.
