West Chandler residents are being invited to join their citywide neighbors for a free Fire Department open house from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 5 at Fire Station No.1, 1491 E. Pecos Road.
The whole family can enjoy tours of the station and get a close-up look at a fire truck and ambulance, as well as see apparatus displays and demonstrations of emergency medical services.
Free balloons and fire helmets will be available for children.
In addition to the fun, Chandler Fire will offer blood pressure checks and provide drowning prevention information.
In a Fire Safety House display, children will get hands-on instruction on how to get out of a smoke-filled environment.
The event will also feature instruction on Hands-Only CPR, which when performed by a bystander has been shown to be as effective as “conventional” CPR in emergencies that occur at home, work, or in public.
In terms of generally accepted guidance, there are only two steps to remember: call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest.
