Fire, Health & Medical Department to hold open house in south Chandler on Oct. 15
 
Sparky the Fire Dog at an Open HouseThe Chandler Fire, Health & Medical (CFHM) Department is holding a free open house for the public from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016, at Fire Station No. 7, 6200 S. Gilbert Road. The event is part of the Department’s ongoing efforts to educate residents about the services provided by Chandler Fire, Health & Medical and to share safety, fire prevention and emergency preparedness information with the public.
 
In addition to tours of the station there will be fire truck, ambulance and apparatus displays and demonstrations of emergency medical services. Blood pressure checks will be available, along with drowning prevention information. In the Fire Safety House display, children will get hands-on instruction on how to get out of a smoke filled environment. Free balloons and fire helmets will be available for children.
 
Throughout the event, CFHM staff will be available to talk about the Crisis Response volunteer program, smoke alarm program, and Fire Cadet program.
 
This open house will also feature instruction on Hands-OnlyTM CPR, which when performed by a bystander has been shown to be as effective as “conventional” CPR in emergencies that occur at home, work or in public. There are only two steps to remember: Call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest.
 
Fire Station No. 7 is located on the west side of Gilbert Road, just south of Riggs Road. For more information about the open house, please call 480-782-2120 or go online to chandleraz.gov/fire.
