Every year, the Beverly Hills Firefighters' Association in conjunction with the Beverly Hills Fire Department open their doors to invite the community to experience a fun-filled afternoon of live demonstrations, displays, educational programs and fire engine rides for the first 200 visitors. The event begins at 1:00pm at the Headquarters Fire Station #1 located on Rexford Drive. Off duty BHFA member’s volunteer their time to cook hot dogs and provide complimentary food and refreshments for the community. There is a special visit from Sparky the Fire Dog which is always a crowd favorite.
Beverly Hills community is encouraged to talk with the firefighters and see the latest in firefighting equipment and apparatus, take personal tours of the station and see special displays of Beverly Hills Fire Department equipment. BHFA members also provide fire engine rides, demonstrations, rappelling display, extrication demonstration, and extinguish a car fire. Stay connected with us to learn of new details.
