Each year, for the past many years, the Running Springs Fire Department has hosted its Emergency Services Day and this year’s event is set for October 11 at Station 51 on Hilltop Blvd. The hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the day will feature information on fire prevention as well as how to protect your property and family from fires and what to do if there is one. This interesting annual also includes exhibits and information from many mountain-top organizations and departments.
Throughout the event local residents and visitors have been able to talk to representatives and get information from a variety of organizations include the Fire Safe Council, Rim Family Services, the U.S. Forest Service as well as the representatives from the Running Springs and Arrowbear fire departments.
The California Highway Patrol has been involved in this special event for several years and they will again have some exciting events in the parking lot.
This is an interesting, fun visit to both facilities which are located so close to each other everyone just walks a few steps and you can get from one agency to the other.
Be sure to bring the children. A large bounce house will be set up in the CHP office parking lot and everyone is fascinated while they take a tour of the inside of the building (well, as long as you’re not in handcuffs). It’s quite fascinating so come out and enjoy this longtime event. Have questions about driving or other issues? This is the place to come for answers and the officers enjoy it as much as everyone else,I’m guessing. Come and meet the local CHP officers. They don’t bite, I promise!
