3. "Douglas Park Fire Station" by Mary TroyanIt’s Fire Prevention Week, and Arlington’s ten fire stations will be holding open houses this weekend to mark the occasion.

The fire station open houses will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12. The events will give residents an opportunity to talk with firefighters, tour the stations, climb aboard fire trucks and learn about fire safety. There will also be activities for kids.

The theme of Fire Prevention Week this year is “Prevent Kitchen Fires.”

“More fires start in the kitchen than in any other part of the home,” says the Arlington County Fire Department website. “Come to the open house and learn how to prevent cooking fires from starting in the first place and other important fire safety tips.”
