Fire prevention week

The Eagan Fire Safety Center (Station #2) hosted an open house on Saturday afternoon. Kids could pose with the fire dog and a fireman, spray the fire hose at a practice house and put out a stove fire with a fire extinguisher. Fire trucks and lots of equipment were displayed and firefighters demonstrated cutting open a car with the "Jaws of life" and other powerful tools.

  1. Leif! Your kids are just as cute as ever! I'm sure that is a great experience to them! Once in my life I wanted to be a Fireman too! Who knows someday I could be a volunteer too? But maybe I have to improve my body first :)

    Rumor has it that you tried to convince the Fire Marshall that a package of Jiffy Pop Popcorn hanging on your wall was a redneck fire detector.

    «Louis» knows that rumor is true because he started it himself, just like the rumor he started about the King of Norway a lutefisk burrito....

  3. I think that Louis' ludefish burrito sign is very funny, Leif. At first I thought it was your bedevilment.

    This demonstration is a good way to educate the kids (adults, too) on fire prevention. Fires are really, really scary.
