In celebration of fire prevention week, the Williamston Firemen’s Association is hosting the 6th annual pancake breakfast and open house on Saturday, Oct. 10.
Between 8 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., members of the association will serve all-you-can-eat pancakes with scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, orange juice, milk and coffee at the NIESA/Williamston Fire Station, 1296 W. Grand River Ave.
“It’s a fundraiser for the association, (which) uses it to buy equipment for the department,” said Capt. Scott Cochrane. “We also give money to local charities like the food bank.”
Tickets are $6 for adults, $4 for children under 12 or $20 per family. Tickets can be purchased at the fire station, Siegel’s Body Shop and from Williamston firefighters, as well as at the station on the day of the event.
Cochrane said the fire trucks will be shown off Saturday outside the station. Equipment demonstrations and station tours will also be part of the event. Fire prevention information will be available, too.
During fire prevention week, Oct. 5-11, Williamston firefighters have visited area schools to speak about fire prevention and safety, said Cochrane.
