The Open House will be held on Sunday, October 19 at the Glen Echo Fire station. It will start at 11am and end by 2pm. We will feature fire department apparatus to look at and sit in, hourly kitchen fire demonstrations, a junior fire-fighting training simulator, and various public safety demonstrations.
The department will have hot dogs, chips, cookies, and drinks available for the public to enjoy - Free, with hope of a small donation.
Any questions? Please contact the Open House Chair, John Hardison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Glen Echo Fire Department serves the southern tip of Montgomery County, Maryland, just outside of Northwest Washington, DC. Our primary response area, commonly known as our "first due" area, includes portions of Bethesda and Chevy Chase and is bounded, roughly speaking, by the Virginia shoreline of the Potomac River on the southwest, Wilson Lane on the northwest, River Road on the northeast, and Maryland/DC border that runs along Western Avenue on the southeast. In addition, we are frequently dispatched to adjoining communities such as Friendship Heights, Kenwood Park, Somerset, Kenwood, Cabin John, and Landon Woods.
