The Crown Point Volunteer Fire Department will present its annual Fire Prevention Open House on Sunday October 6th, 2019 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Crown Point Fire Station, 126 N.

Hot dogs, chips, popcorn, beverages and desserts will be available at the open house, which is open to the community. Learn how to protect your family from fire in the EDITH (Exit Drills in the Home) Trailer and build your own home fire escape plan. Kids will be able to take a look inside the fire trucks and ambulances plus participate in hands on activities. Kids can try on fire gear and participate in the Junior Firefighter obstacle course. Representatives from Franciscan Health Crown Point, Lake County E-911, and Crown Point Police Department will also have safety booths.
East Street will be closed from Robinson Court to Clark Street from 9:00 AM until approximately 2:30 PM. Open house guests can still make entry into the fire station and the library parking lot via East Street.
