Come tour the Maxwell Fire Station this Saturday, Oct. 12. The firefighters and EMS personnel are hosting an open house at the station from 2-4 p.m. There will be goodie bags for the kids, burgers and hot dogs, too! EMS will give tours of the ambulance, and kids will be able to even sit in one of the fire trucks and have their picture taken, as long as they ask a firefighter first!
