Eat breakfast in fire station where the ambulances and engines normally are parked during a pancake feed this weekend. South Whatcom Firefighters Association sponsors the annual event from 7 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 10, at South Whatcom Fire Authority’s Station 21, 4518 Cable St. in the Geneva neighborhood.

In addition to fire engine and station tours, there will be a fire safety house where children can learn about what to do in case of a house fire — and they’ll be able to practice escaping their bedroom in a mock emergency.

Menu includes pancakes, eggs and ham. Admission is $5 per person or $15 for a family. A portion of the proceeds benefits Daniel Lyon, the U.S. Forest Service firefighter who was critically injured in last summer’s deadly wildfire near Twisp.

Robert Mittendorf is a volunteer firefighter with South Whatcom Fire Authority and will be volunteering at this event.
