ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The Onalaska Fire Department hosted their open house Saturday.
Fire fighters gave tours of the fire trucks and equipment and the Fort McCoy safety house was on hand.
Kids got to simulate walking through a smoky house and learn about how to get out safely.
Jeff Koch, the department's Public Education Coordinator says "every parent think's that they're going to go to their kids room and get them out but you can't rely on that you have to be prepared."
Also at the open house, Gundersen Health System's Med-Link helicopter.
The helicopter holds three paramedics and responds to medical calls within a 150 mile radius of La Crosse.
