This Oct. 5 through 11 is Fire Prevention Week. According to the National Fire Protection Association, this year’s theme is “Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month”. To kick off the week, the Poway Firefighter’s Association and the City of Poway Fire Department invites the public to their 29th Annual Fire Department Open House. The free event provides activities and learning opportunities for all ages, including a Kid’s Safety House, the Santee clowns, tours of the training tower and fire engines, and the chance to spray a real fire hose at a target. Proceeds from the concession stand will benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The open house will be held on Saturday, Oct. 4, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Fire Training Tower at 12335 Crosthwaite Cir.
