Fourth Annual VRFA Scout Night at the Fire Station to be held Nov. 6 at Station 34 on Lea Hill

VRFA logoThe Valley Regional Fire Authority will host the fourth annual Scout Night at the Fire Station on Nov. 6 at the Lea Hill fire station located at 31290 124th Ave. SE, Auburn. Boy and girl scouts from the Algona, Auburn and Pacific area are invited to join the VRFA from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Topics for the event include a tour of the fire station, fire safety practices, basic first aid training, cooking safety, knot tying  and information on how to be prepared for a disaster.

Scouts and their leaders can attend any or all of the seven learning stations. Firefighters and other subject matter experts will provide information on how to make their homes safe, change the batteries and test their smoke alarms, treat minor injuries, tie knots, and how to design and practice a home escape plan. They will also learn about emergency preparedness for individuals and families, and see firsthand the tools and equipment used by firefighters while learning more about a career in the fire service. New this year will be a cooking safety station where scouts will learn how to use the stove safely.

During the year the VRFA receives dozens of requests for station tours from local scouting groups. Consolidating all the needs of the Scouts into a single event has proven to be a better experience for both the Scouts and VRFA staff.   “Scout Night offers a more in-depth learning experience for the scouts combined with a fun evening at the fire station,” said Deputy Fire Chief Mike Gerber.

This event is open to scout groups and all other youth explorer and adventure groups. To register in advance and ask questions about the event, contact Public Information & Education Officers, Kelly Tyson at 253-288-5882 or Kimberly Terhune at 253-288-5881 or by email at Public.Info@vrfa.org.
