The Alhambra Fire Department, 301 N. First St., invites the community to a pancake breakfast and its annual open house from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 10.
The Fire Department will give tours of the facility and display the Fire Safety House and a variety of fire and medical apparatus.
A variety of show-and-tell demonstrations are scheduled, including a look at Aerial Ladder Operations and a Jaws of Life demo as part of Vehicle Rescue Techniques.
Sparky the Fire Dog will greet all guests and provide the opportunity to take photos.
In addition to providing handouts that provide essential fire prevention information, the open house will feature a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) booth. Fire staff and volunteers will explain the program, which trains residents and local business people during eight weekly sessions in emergency disaster preparedness, first aid, communications, and team work. Participants will learn the skills to survive a disaster and provide neighborhood assistance until emergency agencies arrive.
