A Homewood firefighter removes window glass from 
a car during an extrication demonstration at the 
2014 fire department open house.

Homewood area residents will have a chance to get a close-up look at how firefighters work Saturday, Oct. 10, during the annual Homewood Fire Department open house.

A youngster gets a chance to 
practice escaping from a 
fire during the 2014 
Homewood Fire Department 
Open House.

The event will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the fire department, 17950 Dixie Highway, and will allow the community to experience  the workings of the fire department, according to the village e-newswire. 

Staff will give demonstrations and give visitors the opportunity to go through an obstacle course.  Refreshments will be served.

Fire Chief Bob Grabowski 
explains how sprinkler 
systems help keep fires 
from spreading fast, giving 
firefighters a better chance 
of extinguishing a blaze 
before significant damage 
can occur. 

An automobile extrication demonstration will take place at 12:15 p.m. and a live burn sprinkler demonstration will occur at 1:15 p.m.

Between those times, guests will be able to see fire department equipment up close, learn about fire safety and talk to local firefighters.

For more information call 708-206-3400.
