Shreveport Fire Department Open House Weekend
Some "cool" events for the Shreveport Fire Department's 12th Annual Open House...the weekend celebration will be held this Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. This year, local businesses are lending their support by donating refreshments that will be served at each fire station in town. Officials from Willis-Knighton will also provide free health screenings Saturday from 10 to 1 at fire stations 8 and 13, while Shreveport firefighters and paramedics conduct equipment demonstrations and rescue techniques. Fair grounds field fire station number 8 will be the premier location for special events, including the department's Fire Safety House and mascot "Pluggie" -- and a special cooling effect mister and sprinkler system. If you go, you're encouraged to bring a non-perisable canned good to donate to the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank.
