The River Forest Fire Department is showcasing their newest fire truck at their annual open house on Saturday, Oct. 13! From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., the firehouse (400 Park Ave.) will be open to the public.

Join the local community and meet some of the firefighters while learning more about the fire trucks and fire safety. The open house is a free and family-friendly event. Kids love seeing the trucks light up!

River Forest’s Fire Department provides a lot of vital services to the community including fire suppression and prevention, emergency medical services, and rescue services.  The fire station, located on Park Avenue, is home to two fire engines, a fire truck, and an ambulance. 18 firefighters along with the Fire Chief and Fire Marshal work hard to keep the surrounding community safe.

Other local organizations will also be at the open house with important safety information. The River Forest Police Department will be attending along with the Public Works Department and NICOR. Plan to stop by the station to visit with our local heroes and safety gurus!
