Public Safety Open House a Great Time

Halloween 2016
Thank you to everyone that helped make this year’s event a success.  We had 426 adults and 361 children attend this year’s Public Safety Halloween Open House.  Attendance was down this year, most likely because it was so nice outside, but it was still a great event.
The Stayton Fire District’s Fire/Life Safety Team coordinated the event and it is supported by our volunteers, local agencies, community members, and high school volunteers.  This year Santiam Ambulance, Stayton Police Department, Pacific Power, and the Oregon Burn Center participated.  The event is a wrap up to Fire Prevention Month and provides fun activities centered on safety for the kids and families.
This year kids got to practice dialing 911, crawling low in smoke, and answer fire safety questions at the pick a duck and safety wheel of fortune activities.  Oregon Burn Center presented burn prevention and burn care, and at the Pacific Power booth kids got to learn about electrical safety.  Kids and adults alike took the Fire Prevention Week quiz on a touch screen computer to test their smoke alarm knowledge and learned what we teach the kids in school each October.  Other fun activities included checking out the ambulance and police car, taking a turn in the bounce house and fishing for prizes.
To those that attended, “Thank you for letting us share important lifesaving messages in a fun way with you!”
