The Pella Fire Department is hosting their second annual breakfast event to kick off Fire Prevention Week.
Justin Trenkamp with the Pella Fire Department tells KNIA/KRLS News they are hosting a morning filled with activities and a meal for all ages on October 6th.
“This year we are going to add some more activities for the kids–this is really centered around getting the kids out to see the fire station in preparation of Fire Prevention Week,” he says.
Kids will be able to walk through a firetruck, try on bunker gear, and play in a bounce house. Additionally, he says there will be prizes for raffle to help raise funds. Additionally, the Pella Police Department will host their next Coffee with a Cop opportunity at the event for those who want to meet and ask questions of officers, as well as the “What You Don’t See” Trailer for parents wanting to learn the ways teenagers hide drugs in their bedrooms.
Proceeds will go towards a new UTV with a tank for Pella Rural Fire calls. The 2nd annual Pella Fire Department breakfast will be held from 6 to 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 6th at their station on Main Street.
