MESQUITE, Nev. –  As fire prevention week comes to an end, the City of Mesquite Fire Station No. 3 invites the community to come out Saturday at 8 a.m. PDT and join in its third annual pancake breakfast and open house.

The event started three years ago when Station No. 3 brought in its new fire chief, Kash Christopher, in an effort to raise awareness and bring the community together. It was a hit and has become an annual event.

Presentations from Mesquite’s local Fire Prevention Group will be featured at the community breakfast, along with a tour of Mesquite’s fire station headquarters.

Members of the Fire Prevention Group dress up in costume and travel around to local schools to bring an entertaining, educational approach to the younger kids on what to do in the event of a fire. The group also visits senior centers and creates and posts press releases on the important subject of fire prevention.

Bikers Against Child Abuse will also be in attendance, showing their support. The event is free but donations are being taken to benefit the local high school-age Fire Explorer Post.
