Kelowna Fire Dept. Open House (new location!)
Kelowna Fire Department (KFD) will host its annual open house event on Sunday, May 7 from 9:30 a.m. to noon in the former Costco parking lot located at 2479 Highway 97.
Supporting the Kelowna Professional Firefighters Charitable Society, this year’s free family-fun event will feature multiple agencies including Kelowna RCMP, BC Ambulance Service, BC Wildfire Service, Central Okanagan Search and Rescue, Big White Fire Department, Central Okanagan Emergency Support Services, City of Kelowna Bylaw Services and YLW Aircraft Rescue Firefighting (ARFF).
Attendees will have the chance explore fire trucks, police cars and other emergency vehicles, while learning about emergency preparedness and fire prevention, including how to FireSmart their homes and property. Salvation Army volunteers will be serving coffee and a pancake breakfast, by donation, with proceeds going to Kelowna Professional Firefighters Charitable Society (KPFCS). The registered non-profit society raises funds for local, provincial and national charities and programs, including the Free Snacks for Students initiative at nine elementary schools in Kelowna.
