Pearland Fire Department is getting a new fire station! The station will be open for the public to come out with the whole family to see on April 2nd from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The new location, Station No. 5, is located at 3100 Kirby Drive and actually began operating in January of this year.
The Grand Opening celebration will offer many activities for the public to enjoy, including fire safety demonstrations, car safety demonstrations and fire tours. The tour will feature two fire trucks, dorm space and other features of the station.
“What this station has that other stations don’t is a very nice training room,” says Monica Eaton, the department’s Administrative Secretary.
A pumper truck will be on display at the Grand Opening and firefighters will hold burn demonstrations that show just how quickly things in the home can ignite.
The Pearland Shriners will provide live music along with lots of kids' activities including face painting and the famous fire engine “climb through”.
