The week was highlighted by visits to Sacred Heart Academy, pre-schools and businesses for information sessions and inspections.
The open house gave the fire department an opportunity to offer visitors a glimpse at the firefighters' equipment.
The children on hand thought 'Freddie the Fire Truck' was a great hit.
During the open house there were ticket draws for smoke alarms given away as prizes.
