The Ocean Shores Fire Department will conduct its annual open house Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 5 to 8 p.m. The main fire station at 585 Pt. Brown Ave. NE will host a variety of activities and demonstrations, and flu shots will be available.
Capt. Corey Kuhl, the department’s public information officer, said in a news release that, “We are on schedule for the traditional “Push In” ceremony with the brand-new fire engine.”
Chief Mike Thurier told the Ocean Shores City Council on Monday night that they are “keeping our fingers crossed” that the engine, valued at nearly $600,000 and acquired through a FEMA grant, is delivered in time for the public event.
Other activities include a jaws of life demonstration dubbed “Extrication Evolution,” tours of the apparatus and station, flu shots available to the public and hot dogs, popcorn and drinks. Kuhl said they are “excited to see everyone,” and urged people to “come out and meet your local fire and EMS crews!”
