Once a year all Los Angeles Fire Stations open their doors to the public. While you can visit any fire station any time, on this day they roll out the (ah,hem) RED carpet for you with special displays and events at many stations. Come by, say hello, and thank them for the wonderful and dangerous job they do.
From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, all Neighborhood Fire Stations in the City of Los Angeles will be expecting you. To increase community awareness of Fire Department services, the Los Angeles Fire Department designates the second Saturday of May as Fire Service Recognition Day. To find your nearest station (which you should know anyway) visit lafd.org
