Arcata Fire District opens its doors to the community

McKinleyville., Ca (KIEM)- While the community was out enjoying the pony express days parade those who stopped by the Arcata Fire District, got a behind-the-scenes-look at what goes into keeping the community safe. Plenty of interactive thing to do like a small obstacle course and examples of how fires spread kept the children entertained.

Fire Chief Justin McDonald says it’s a fun way to educate the community about the folks that work every day to keep them safe. Many representatives of public safety were there including CERT North Coast Weather Service,¬†and a visit from Smokey the Bear.
