Hoodland Fire Station to Hold Open House
By Ty Walker
Hoodland Fire District #74 is inviting the public to an open house at the fire station from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7. The station is located at 69634 E Hwy 26 in Welches.
This is your chance to meet local firefighters. They will give talks on fire prevention safety and demonstrate emergency medical services (EMS). Kids of all ages can go on fire truck rides and try on firefighter gear.
Cookies and punch will be offered as refreshments. The event plans to provide fun and safety education for the whole family.
ODOT road work has disrupted traffic in the area. Parking for the open house is available at the school behind the fire station.
The Fire District was established as a special district by Clackamas County Commissioners on September 19, 1966. Hoodland Fire District provides fire, rescue and advanced life support emergency medical services in a 45 square mile district between Sandy and Mt. Hood.
