By Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue
Scouts from the Beaverton area won’t want to miss an opportunity to learn about fire safety and emergency preparedness from professionals.
Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue is hosting a Scout Day on Saturday, April 8, from 10 a.m. to noon at the South Operating Center, 8445 S.W. Elligsen Road, in Wilsonville. Both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts from across TVF&R’s service area are invited to attend this free community event.
Scouts will have an opportunity to tour a fire station, learn about firefighting as a career, go through the Fire Safety House, learn about fire safety and escape planning, and explore firefighting gear, fire trucks, and engines.
This event is tailored for Scouts in first through fourth grades. Participants will be divided into groups and rotate through several hands-on and interactive stations. Scout leaders and parents will move through the activity stations with their Scouts.
We will start promptly at 10 a.m. and encourage groups to arrive 15 minutes early. Those interested in attending the event can register online at www.tvfr.com. For more information, contact Dorene Boger at 503-259-1502 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
