For Fire Prevention Week this year, the theme of the open house is “Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practice your escape,” according to a news release. The event is free and family-friendly.

The theme encourages everyone to be a hero by making a home fire escape plan and practicing the plan.

The open house will take place at Fire Station 2, located at 23806 W. 135th St. in Plainfield.

There will be a children’s firefighter challenge course, a side-by-side fire sprinkler demonstration, displays, free raffle prizes and free refreshments. Visitors can also participate in tours of the fire station.
