Valley Regional Fire Authority will have an open house for a renovated fire station in Auburn Saturday.
The event, including displays, demonstrations and refreshments, will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at remodeled Station 32 at 1951 R St. S.E., Auburn.
Children can try on firefighter gear, build their own firetrucks, tour through a fire engine and medical aid car, and meet “Sparky” the fire dog and “Pluggie” the fire hydrant robot.
Adults can try out a thermal-imaging camera, obtain a blood pressure or blood sugar check, tour the station and obtain home safety information.
A rededication ceremony will take place at noon. Money to remodel Station 32 was part of a capital funding projects measure that voters approved in February 2008.
The Valley Regional Fire Authority serves Auburn, Algona, Pacific and King County Fire District 31.
