Lewiston No. 1 Volunteer Fire Co. invites the community to attend its annual open house on Friday, June 3. The event runs from 4 until 7 p.m. at 145 N. Sixth St.

Firefighters will serve hamburgers, hot dogs and other refreshments free of charge. Activities and events include equipment and smoke room demonstrations; a live burn; home fire extinguisher training; free blood pressure screenings; apparatus tours; and fire truck rides.

The fire company is raising funds to construct a new, state-of-the-art facility. Members say the current facility, built in 1955 and expanded a decade later, is no longer big enough to accommodate modern equipment.

For more than 97 years, Lewiston No. 1 has provided the Lewiston area with round-the-clock fire and medical service. In 2010, volunteers responded to more than 900 calls.

If you're interested in joining the team (as a firefighter, medical personnel, fire police or support staff), call 754-2180 or email [email protected].
