Queen Creek residents of all ages had the opportunity to see, feel, tour, sit in and even wear items associated with the Queen Creek Fire and Medical Department during an open house in 2016 in downtown Queen Creek. (Town of Queen Creek)

Sit in the engineer’s seat, spray a fire hose and try on turnout gear at the Queen Creek Fire and Medical Department’s community open house 9-11 a.m. Saturday, March 23.

It will be at Fire Station No. 1, 20678 E. Civic Parkway.

Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the station, check out the various emergency vehicles, observe a cardiopulmonary resuscitation demonstration and more, according to a release.

“We always enjoy opportunities to engage with our residents,” Queen Creek Fire and Medical Chief Vance Gray said in the release.

“This event provides an important mix of education and fun. I encourage everyone to stop by and get to know their local firefighters.”
