The LFD’s 7th Annual Open House event took place Saturday, October 12 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
It was a huge success. Approximately 3,000 people showed up to learn more about fire safety, to better understand the many different services the department offers the community, and to see the equipment used to keep the citizens of Lakeland safe up close.
The event is growing every year and 2013's Open House was the biggest one yet with record attendance. Demonstrations we offered every half hour, kitchen fire safety tips were provided, and guests were invited to tour the station and enjoy free goodies and refreshments.
Planning will begin soon for next year's event, so mark your calendars because the 8th annual Open House event is planned for October 11, 2014. It will be even bigger and better than before.
