Local Scouts 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 22, 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, learn about fire safety and escape planning, explore first aid, and check out firefighting gear and apparatus.
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 are encouraged to 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. For more information about Scout Day, call 503-259-1502 or email Events@tvfr.com.
