Fire department invites public to open house

The public is invited to the Ramona Fire Department’s annual open house on Saturday, Oct. 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Fire Station 80, 829 San Vicente Road. The family event will offer up-close views of fire equipment, fire engines, a firefighting bulldozer, and helicopters.

“We’ll be able to demonstrate jaws of life,” said Fire Capt. Jose Ramirez.

The demonstration will show how firefighters extricate a person trapped in a vehicle. Firefighters will also demonstrate how to extinguish a stovetop grease fire.

For the children, there will be a coloring contest and other activities organized by the fire department and the West End Fire Safe Council. Also at the open house will be Smokey Bear and an interactive fire safety trailer.

Representatives from California Highway Patrol, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, Community Emergency Response Team and San Diego Gas and Electric will also participate. Food will be available for purchase from Mi Ranchito.
