opprairie.com News the orland park prairie | June 22, 2017 | 3 Fire district’s open house sparks fun time Laurie Fanelli Freelance Reporter Summertime provides ample opportunities to have fin in the sun with loved ones but between parking costs, admission fees and pricey snacks those fun days can often cost an arm and a leg. The Orland Fire District Open House & Blood Drive gave residents an opportunity to create lasting memories with their family members Saturday, June 17 at an event that not only provided entertainment for the entire family but was kind to their wallets. Residents were invited to the Orland Training Center, 10728 W. 163rd Place, were a fun, fire-themed obstacle course gave children the opportunity to use a fire hose — with a little help, of course — and enjoy interesting presentations scheduled throughout the day. Demonstrations included car extractions, helicopter hospital transfers and water emergencies and side-by-side burns – which highlighted the difference between having a sprinkler system in a facility verses not having one – were a hit with parents and children alike. Kelly Eshelman, an Orland Park resident, stopped by the open house with her husband, Sean, and their 2-year-old son, Aidan. “It’s free so that’s really nice,” Kelly said. “Everything always costs so much money and it’s great to enjoy a nice opportunity in our community to walk around and check things out. Aidan’s having a ball.” Aidan especially enjoyed watching the car extraction demonstration. Firefighters showed some of the techniques the Fire District uses to get people out of a vehicle if the door cannot open due to damage after an accident. “He was mesmerized by what they were doing,” Kelly said. Inside the firehouse, visitors were invited to stop by to see how the Orland Fire District utilizes drone technology on the job.
