Serving Kelowna Since 1905

Open House

Kelowna Fire Department will open its doors to the public Sunday, Oct. 2, for a pancake breakfast and family fun day in support of the BC Burn Fund.

 

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Station 1 at 2255 Enterprise Way, with the support of the Salvation Army, YMCA and BC Burn Fund volunteers.

 

“This will be a fun place for families and we encourage as many people as possible to come out, have breakfast, meet Kelowna’s firefighters and have some fun with the events and demonstrations we have planned,” says Kelowna Fire Chief Jeff Carlisle.

 

In addition to the breakfast, visitors will see auto extraction demonstrations, high-angle rescues, fire extinguisher demonstrations and the fire safety house. Mayor Sharon Shepherd and other local celebrities will participate in the demonstrations.

 

Other events include face painting, bouncy castle obstacle course, family games and more.

 

People of all ages are invited to attend, with all proceeds going to the BC Burn Fund. Under its slogan, Preventing Victims, Empowering Survivors, the BC Burn Fund provides life saving, life supporting, and life enriching services to the people in British Columbia.
