You don’t need a kid in tow to want to take part in Fire Service Day on Saturday, when all eight Pasadena fire stations will be hosting open houses. Most exciting will be the happenings at Fire Station 33 (515 N. Lake Ave.), where firefighters will put out a vehicle fire and demonstrate such cool things as the jaws of life and the aerial ladders. All the trucks and equipment will be out for visitors to explore, and there will be hot dogs and cold drinks.
The other seven stations in town will also be hosting open houses and showing off their gear, although you won’t see flames at those. But you can get to know the remarkable men and women who fight our fires.
Here’s the complete list of stations:
Fire Station #31, 135 S. Fair Oaks Ave.
