SHELBY – As a show of appreciation for the community, the Shelby Volunteer Fire Company will have an open house with activities on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event will be at the fire hall at 4677 South Gravel Rd. and includes the county’s new fire prevention trailer, which has a focus on developing a fire escape plan for families.

Shelby firefighters will also do an extrication demonstration cutting up cars with tools.

“We want to spotlight our fire company and also say thank you to the community,” said Tim Petry, president of the Shelby Volunteer Fire Company. “Everybody donates year-round to us so this is a thank you.”

The open house includes a bounce house, an obstacle course for children, a chance to take a ride in a fire truck, tour the fire station, meet some of the firefighters, and receive helmets and goodie bags for kids.

There will also be food, refreshments and a basket raffle.
