The annual Fire Prevention Festival will be held on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Strawberry Park. Hosted by the Pasadena Fire Department and the Pasadena Fire Marshals’ Office, this popular, family-friendly event is full of fun activities for kids and important fire safety information for everyone.

Kids can meet Sparky the Fire Dog and get an up-close look at fire equipment and rescue vehicles. The event will also feature moon walks, a rock walk, a petting zoo, face painting, a water tattoo table and door prizes.

In addition, the festival also features several informational booths, displays and activities that teach fire safety, while still allowing kids to have plenty of fun. Kids can participate in demonstrations of fire response techniques, like “Stop, Drop and Roll” and “Get Low and Go,” and can even earn their Jr. Fire Prevention Officer certification by learning about and completing six of the nine fire disciplines offered.

“Fire can be quickly become devastating,” Pasadena Fire Marshal David Brannon said. “By teaching some basic safety tips, hopefully we can prevent things happening to them, as well as their family, loved ones or even innocent bystanders.”

Admission to the Fire Prevention Festival is free. For more information, contact the Pasadena Fire Marshal’s office at (713) 475-5556.
