Fire Prevention Week: 6 Tacoma fire stations to host open houses

Tacoma residents can celebrate Fire Prevention Week by visiting six neighborhood fire stations between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Sat., Oct. 13. This year’s theme, “have two ways out,” encourages everyone to team up and spread the message that fire safety saves lives. Equipment will be on display and firefighters will answer questions about escape planning, fire safety and disaster preparedness.

The following six stations will host open houses:

  • Station 3 — 206 Browns Point Blvd, NE Tacoma
  • Station 4 — 1453 S. 12th (Earnest S Brazil St), Hilltop
  • Station 11 — 3802 McKinley Ave., McKinley Hill
  • Station 13 — 3825 N. 25th, Proctor
  • Station 16 — 7217 6th Ave., Skyline/West End District
  • Station 17 — 302 Regents Blvd., Fircrest
