The Moraga-Orinda Fire District is hosting its annual Spring Open House and Hot Dog Lunch on Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 10am to 2pm, at Station 45 – 33 Orinda Way, in Orinda.
The theme for the open house is HEARTSafe Lamorinda and Wildfire Preparedness.
HEARTSafe Lamorinda is a program designed to promote survival from sudden out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. The Lamorinda cities and town, in cooperation with the Moraga Orinda Fire District and Contra Costa County Fire and Contra Costa County Emergency Medical Services, through its Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program in collaboration with the American Heart Association, aim to help Lamorinda improve the chances that anyone suffering a sudden cardiac arrest will have the best possible chance for survival.
The Wildfire Preparedness program is a collaborative process to improve coordination and communication between emergency response agencies and the community. It educates the public to prepare their family and properties well in advance of a wildland fire, increase their awareness when fire weather or wildland fires occur, and encourages them to develop and implement a family disaster plan.
Meet your local firefighters, tour the fire trucks, gather important wildfire safety & disaster preparedness information, get free hands-only CPR training (only takes about 30 min.), and much more! Smokey the Bear and Sparky the Fire Dog will make special guest appearances throughout the day.
The hot dog lunch is sponsored by the Moraga-Orinda Professional Firefighters Association and all proceeds will be donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
