PHOTOS: Peru fire station open house entertains, teaches

1 of 8

The Peru Fire Department open house was about more than free hot dogs, trips up and down an inflatable slide and fire truck rides.

In addition to the entertainment, children and families got a chance to meet firefighters and learn about fire safety.

And in addition to firefighters, Lynn Sheedy from Peru Public Library had an entire course set up for the open house visitors at her table, including a dollhouse set up to help children learn about safety and escaping fire.
