Kelowna Fire Department’s annual pancake breakfast

The Kelowna Fire Department will open its doors to the public Sunday, June 9, for a pancake breakfast and family fun day in support of the B.C. Burn Fund.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Main Kelowna Fire Hall at 2255 Enterprise Way, with the support of the Salvation Army, the YMCA-YWCA, and B.C. Firefighters' Burn Fund volunteers. Save On Foods is this year's major sponsor.

"This is a great event for families" says Kelowna Fire Chief, Jeff Carlisle. "We encourage everyone to come and have breakfast, meet Kelowna's firefighters and have some fun with the events and demonstrations."

In addition to the breakfast, visitors can watch several demonstrations such as auto extraction, high angle rescue and the fire safety house. Local celebrities will participate in the demonstrations as simulated victims. Other events include face painting, a bouncy castle, celebrity dunk tank, family games, popcorn and more.

The B.C. Firefighters' Burn Fund provides life saving, life supporting and life enriching services to the people in British Columbia. More than 3,800 professional firefighters in B.C. dedicate and donate their time and skills to support burn survivors and increase the public's knowledge about fire and burn safety issues through the work the B.C. Firefighters' Burn Fund does with its burn awareness, research and prevention programs.

All proceeds will go to the B.C. Burn Fund and all ages are welcome.
