The Log Hill Fire Department is holding a drop-in open house Saturday, May 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. A pumper, ladder truck, tender, brush truck and other equipment used by firefighters will be on view for kids of all ages to inspect. Fire department representatives will be available to answer questions about fire safety, defensible space, county medical services, evacuation planning and more.
Around midmorning the department will conduct a mock evacuation drill, with the fire station serving as the mock evacuation center. Twenty to 30 mesa residents are needed to serve as volunteer evacuees.
