Sept. 26, 2023 - The Oak Park Fire Department is hosting an open house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sat., Oct. 14 at the main fire station located at 100 N. Euclid Ave.
The event returns this year as part of Fire Prevention Month, held each October. The open house allows residents of all ages to get up close to equipment and talk to the firefighter/paramedics who keep the community safe.
In addition to touching the cool equipment essential to the mission of a modern fire department, the event also will include tours of the fire house, presentations about safety and fun handouts.
To help supply local community blood centers, a Vitalant blood drive will be held during the open house.

Always on call, the Fire Department maintains three shifts of more than 20 trained professionals ready to provide around-the-clock protection to residents. All Village firefighters also are paramedics, since delivering emergency medical services is an integral part of the Fire Department mission.
