The event will take place at the Fire Prevention Bureau located at 2100 Jefferson Street. Parents will be able to drive through the parking lot where there will be a fire truck, aerial ladder and fire safety house on visual display.

The first 200 children will receive a fire safety goody bag along with pizza and a drink. Sparky, the mascot will also be on hand to wave at the kids as they pass by.
