Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue will celebrate 120 years of service to the Steamboat Springs community with an open house this weekend.

With a look at the department's past, present and future, the event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Mountain Fire Station, 2600 Pine Grove Road. The open house will include a cookout, face painting, agility tests, fire extinguisher training, car seat safety checks and more.

"We generally meet residents during emergency situations," said Fire Chief Mel Stewart in a news release. "The open house provides an opportunity to learn more about the men and women that serve our community and understand what we do as a department."

The majority of the department's fire trucks, ambulances and equipment will be on display including the ladder truck with its 105-foot ladder. In addition, the station garage bays will host the history of the fire department and highlight some of the larger fires and events that have occurred in the Steamboat community over the years.
