What does it take to be a wildland fireighter? What equipment do they use? What can kids do to prevent wildfires from starting?
Individuals and families can find the answer to these and other fire-related questions at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 22 at the Los Alamos Nature Center. Local wildland firefighters will be on hand to answer questions, demonstrate how to use firefighting equipment and let families see their fire engine.
Summer Family Evenings have always been a popular program at PEEC, and now, with the Del Norte Credit Union’s support, they will be better than ever. Summer Family Evenings take place at the Nature Center at 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday evening throughout June and July. They are free for PEEC members, or $5 per family for non-members. No registration is required.
