FREMONT – The Fremont Rural Fire Department has scheduled an open house event for Fire Prevention Week.
The open house will be in the form of a Pancake Feed and meet-n-greet breakfast at the Fremont Rural Fire Station. People in the community will have the chance to have breakfast and meet the rural volunteer firefighters of Fremont. The Rural Fire Department’s Public Relations Officer Glenn Koplin says having these open houses for the community is important to the department.
“With us being a volunteer fire department, the public doesn’t get a chance to come in and see the firefighters, and the equipment that the taxpayers pay for all the time. So these open houses are very critical for us,” said Koplin. “The public can see what their money’s going through. And since we do a lot of fundraising activities during the course of the year, this gives them a chance to see what the fundraising money is all acquired for.”
The Pancake Feed will be from 8 a.m. to noon on Sunday, October 15th. The event will take place at the Rural Fire Station, which is located at 110 Boulevard St. in Fremont, Nebraska.
