Burbank Police and Fire Departments opened their doors this past weekend like they have for several years to celebrate Fire Service Day and National Police Week.Burbank Fire & Police Open House 5-9-15=

Guests got to meet members of the Fire Department including the nine new rookie firefighters who put on demonstrations. Guests enjoyed tours of the fire station and even got to pet Burbank’s K-9 Stevio and talk to his handler John Enbelton. The Animal Shelter was on hand with dogs that were available for adoption and the Police Foundation with goodies to buy and support the men and women in blue.

The Burbank Police Department displayed their new Mobile Command Post, its newest McDonnell Douglas Notar Helicopter, and even one of its premier motorcycles.Burbank Fire & Police Open House 5-9-15=

A couple of highlights from the day’s activities included pictures with Mickey & Minnie Mouse and Squirt, car extraction demonstrations, and kids rode bikes on an obstacle course.

Kids and adults learned ‘Hands on CPR’ and the importance of installing smoke and sprinklers in your homes.
