The Crystal Fire Department held an open house on Thursday evening at their main station on Erie Avenue. The event was held in conjunction with Fire Prevention Week. From 6-9 p.m., children had the opportunity to participate in a kids' obstacle course and climb on and in all the apparatus. Coloring books and firefighter helmets were available to all those who attended. The ladder truck performed a demonstration which featured two firemen being raised up to the top of the outside of the building, where they changed one of the station's outdoor lightbulbs.
