WSU, Pullman to host community safety fair July 16

By Elizabeth Rudd, Brelsford WSU Visitor Center

PULLMAN, Wash. – Children will learn first-hand about “stop, drop and roll” and how firefighters put out a “fire,” and families can bring car seats for inspection and learn about home fire and smoke safety during a free community safety fair 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, July 16, at the Brelsford Washington State University Visitor Center, 150 E. Spring St. in Pullman.

Free snacks and beverages, including Crimson Fire – one of 11 cheese flavors produced by the WSU Creamery – will be available, along with the chance to win prizes that will be awarded every half hour beginning at 10:30 a.m.

The Pullman Fire Department will coordinate an array of hands-on fire safety activities. Firefighters will lead children – and adults – through an agility training course on the visitor center lawn that will include a cut-out house prop with “fire” in need of extinguishing with a hose.

Fire trucks, an ambulance and vehicle extrication tools will be on display. CPR demonstrations will be offered.
