LPFD set for Fire Safety Expo this weekend

'Every Second Counts -- Plan 2 Ways Out!' is theme for Fire Prevention Week

The Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department is holding its annual Fire Safety Expo on Saturday morning, giving residents a chance to check out emergency equipment first-hand and meet with firefighters in person while learning more about fire prevention in the process.

The free event, designed as educational and interactive for all residents, is scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to noon at the Fire Training Tower at 3333 Busch Road.

The Fire Safety Expo will feature giveaways, firefighter demonstrations, emergency preparedness information and activities for the entire family. People can tour LPFD's fire safety trailer, learn how to use a fire extinguisher, see a Livermore Police Department K-9 demonstration and for younger attendees, take a run through the children's obstacle course.

The Livermore-Pleasanton Firefighters Foundation will help kick off the fun Saturday morning with a pancake breakfast from 8-11 a.m., with donations supporting the Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

The Fire Safety Expo is presented in recognition of this week being National Fire Prevention Week. This year's awareness week message is, "Every Second Counts -- Plan 2 Ways Out!"
