Fired Up

A large crowd turned out at Yankton Fire Station No. 2 on 23rd St. Wednesday night for the annual Yankton Fire Department open house, which is held each year in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 6-12). Attendees got to inspect fire equipment and participate in numerous activities, as well as get a free hot dog and popcorn. The hottest ticket (so to speak) was for the Fire Safety House, which gave kids the opportunity to experience what it’s like to crawl through a burning house. The point of the demonstration was to teach children to stay low to the ground when in a burning building because smoke rises. To view a video, scan this photo with your Yankton Interactive app.
