Family Fire Muster
Kids, be a Firefighter for a Day!
Our 22nd Annual Family Fire Muster was a great success. Over 3000 people joined us on Saturday September 24, 2016 to learn how West Metro Firefighters prepare for emergencies. Attendees saw live fire demonstrations, participated in lots of fun activities and learned how to prepare their families for emergencies.
Most of the attendees heard about the Muster from flyers they received at school. Thanks to all the schools who sent home our flyer! Congrats to Green Gables Elementary School - they won the drawing for a $50 Target Gift Card after sending home the Muster flyers. Congrats to Rosemarie J. and Marian S. from Lakewood and Corie H. from Litteton - they won $40 gift cards to Firehouse Subs and Whole Foods for taking our Muster attendee survey.
We hope you'll join us next year. Mark your calendar:

Here's what to expect:
Break out your Firefighter costume and join us at the Annual Family Fire Muster. No costume? No Worries! We have retired bunker coats for folks to try on and take pictures, so bring your camera too! But leave your pets at home - pets are not allowed at the Muster.
Kids of all ages will enjoy fun activities like the Junior Firefighter Challenge, Teddy Bear Clinic, Bike Rodeo and inflatable slides.
Tour Fire Station #10 and West Metro's Training Center to see how firefighters prepare for emergencies and what it's like to live the dream of being a firefighter! Families will learn what to do to prepare for their own emergencies - have a Family Escape Plan, how to Call 9-1-1 and how to create their own safety profile online at Smart911.com.
Firefighters demonstrate their response to a residential fire and show how important it is to practice your own family fire drill at home. The National Fire Sprinkler Association has a live-fire demonstration showing how fast sprinklers can extinguisher fire in a home.
