Support the Kelowna Professional Firefighters Charitable Society at the Station 1 open house Sept. 13.

Kelowna Fire Department will open its doors to the public Sunday, Sept. 13, for a pancake breakfast and family fun day in support of the Kelowna Professional Firefighters Charitable Society.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to noon at Station 1, 2255 Enterprise Way, with the support of the Salvation Army.

“This will be a fun place for families and we encourage as many people as possible to come out, have breakfast, meet Kelowna’s firefighters and have some fun with the events and demonstrations we have planned,” said Kelowna Fire Chief Jeff Carlisle.

In addition to the breakfast, visitors will see auto extraction and high angle rescue demonstrations with city councillors Tracy Gray and Luke Stack stepping in to act as simulated victims.

The day will also feature fire extinguisher demonstrations and a live burn demonstration.

Other events include face painting and a bouncy castle obstacle course.

People of all ages are invited to attend, with all proceeds going to Kelowna Professional Firefighters Charitable Society, which supports  local charities and the B.C. Professional Firefighters Association Burn Fund.
