Newport Beach Fire Department’s Fire Service Day attracted community to a day of learning fun 

The Newport Beach Fire Department (NBFD) and Newport Beach Firefighters Association hosted a Fire Service Day on Sunday, Oct. 10 at Newport Beach Fire Station #7 in Santa Ana Heights. The free event, coinciding with Fire Prevention Week, attracted hundreds from the community.

The family-friendly event provided attendees with an opportunity to learn more about fire safety and view a live re-enactment of a vehicle extrication using the Jaws of Life along with fire scenarios. Fire and paramedic vehicles were on display along with the department’s antique fire engine.

There were also educational booths staffed by Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers, NB Lifeguards, the NBFD firing up the grill with hotdogs and hamburgers (and served chips and refreshments), face painting by Fantasy Island Tattoo, and kids having the chance to aim & shoot water apparatus, with the help of the Explorers. Youngsters received red plastic firefighter helmets, stick-on badges and fire-helmet topped water bottles filled with pencils and lollipops…and of course the opportunity to climb aboard and “steer” a shiny red firetruck up in the cab.
