Have a Flapjack with a Wyandotte Firefighter

The Wyandotte Fire Department's annual open house and pancake breakfast is Sunday morning.

The Wyandotte Fire Department's annual open house is set for 8 a.m. to noon Sunday at Station No. 1, 266 Maple.

An all-you-can-eat breakfast will be served, along with tours of the station and hands-on activities for children.

The breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, coffee and orange drink. The cost is $4 for adults and $2 for children. Youngsters who return a coloring sheet distributed through Wyandotte Public Schools will receive a free breakfast.

Proceeds from the open house go to the firefighters’ charity fund, which is used to support the families of sick firefighters, muscular dystrophy research foundations and youth sports teams.

The open house is being held in conjunction with the start of national Fire Prevention Week.  

Firefighter Jeffrey Stehlik has organized the event for years and said it draws about 1,000 people annually.

"This has been a tradition within our department for close to 10 years," he said. "Doing this allows the firefighters to open our doors and let the citizens get a glimpse of what firehouse life is like."

Tours of the station and the fire trucks will be available. Children will have a chance to spray a fire hose and check out other firefighting equipment.

The Wyandotte Exchange Club co-sponsors the program.

(Editor's note: This story has been revised to list the correct day for the event, which is Sunday.)
