What's New - September 2017 Minimize

Annual Open House Event

The annual Open House is scheduled for Sunday, October 15, from 11 am to 3 pm, at our station at 6934 Soquel Drive, Aptos (right in front of Mar Vista Elementary).  The theme for this year’s event is “Every Second Counts. Plan Two Ways Out!”  Our ever-popular Bounce House will be there, as well as Patches the Fire Dog, the Junior Firefighter drill, and more fun activities for kids.  Adults will also enjoy live demonstrations, engine/station tours, and information booths from several local public safety agencies such as Community Emergency Response Teams, California Highway Patrol, and the Soquel Creek Water District.  This event is free and fun for all ages!

Disaster Preparedness Week:

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) which serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work and visit. This year’s theme is, “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.” 69% of American families do not have an emergency plan.  The video below from Ready.gov illustrates the importance of thinking ahead, to prepare for a major earthquake, flood or other disaster. For more info on preparedness, visit FEMA’s disaster preparedness website at www.ready.gov

 

Holiday Hours

The A/LSFPD Administration office will be closed on Monday, September 4, 2017, for Labor Day.  We wish you and your families a safe and happy holiday weekend!
