Fire District Open House
Saturday, October 15, 2022
Our annual Open House will feature equipment display and demonstrations, booths from multiple emergency service agencies (Law Enforcement, Lifeguards, Soquel Creek Water, AMR, Red Cross, Salvation Army, CERT and more!), and a variety of fun, games and prizes for all ages.
Central Fire District of Santa Cruz County will be holding it’s First Annual Open House on Saturday, October 15th, 2022, at the Aptos Station at 6934 Soquel Drive, Aptos.
This event will be held from 11 AM – 3 PM, and is free and open to visitors of all ages.
It is a very special event this year, as it is our FIRST Open House since the consolidation of Aptos/La Selva and Central Fire Protection Districts, as well as the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week (which runs from October 9-15 this year). The theme for Fire Prevention Week this year is “Fire Won’t Wait – Plan Your Escape!”
We have a number of participating agencies this year, all with activities, demonstrations and displays to promote public safety and disaster preparedness. Red Cross, Salvation Army, American Medical Response, State Parks/Lifeguards, Santa Cruz County Sheriff and SPCA, as well as the CERT (Community Emergency Response Teams) of Santa Cruz County will be there.
We will also have a special raffle at the event with a number of fantastic prizes from local businesses, including Play it Again Sports, The Craft Gallery, Britannia Arms, O'Neill and Wonderland Toys. 100% of the proceeds for this raffle will go to the Santa Cruz County Fallen Officer Foundation, which directly supports S.C. County First responders and their families in times of crisis.
Other fun activities include:
- Bounce House & Junior Firefighter Course
