The Escondido Fire Department and Rincon del Diablo Fire District are teaming up to put on a fire expo, Cruisin’ to Safety, on June 15 at Kit Carson Park. The event is free.
The Escondido Fire Department and Rincon del Diablo Fire District have shared in the traditional goal of saving lives and safeguarding property over many decades.
And with recent unprecedented rainfall, wildfire prevention and preparedness are more critical than ever. As a result, both agencies are teaming up once again on Saturday, June 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Fire Station #4 located at the Mary Lane entrance to Kit Carson Park, 3301 Bear Valley Parkway.
This year’s expo, Cruisin’ to Safety is hot rod-themed to honor the 20th anniversary of Cruisin’ Grand and is a perfect outing for the Father’s Day weekend. Cruisin’ to Safety will provide families and friends with an opportunity to do some “one-stop shopping” for information, products, and services in order to be well-prepared for the fire season. A variety of businesses and organizations will staff booths and displays during the event to provide information about everything from fire safety and prevention, to water conservation, pet care, and more.
The Expo, which is a free community event and an annual tradition for the past twenty-five years, will be a fun experience for all ages. Expo-goers will have an opportunity to ride on a fire truck, talk with hardworking first responders, and see firefighting equipment up close, as well as learn how to prevent fires and prepare for emergencies. A CalFire helicopter landing, a simulated auto extrication using the jaws of life, Dr. Bronner’s Magical Foam Experience (don’t forget to bring a towel), free refreshments, and a giant inflatable slide will round out the event. Low cost hot dogs and hamburgers will also be available. For more information, visit www.rinconwater.org.
