Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV) —Every year, Fire Week raises awareness of the need to prevent a fire and what to do if it is at risk. To help spread that awareness, the Carter Lake Fire Department’s Smoke Eaters organizes family activities and free concert days in October. The proceeds from the event will benefit the Carter Lake Fire Department.
Smoke Eaters, a non-profit organization of the Carter Lake Fire Department, will begin a fire protection week at Carter Lake Ballfield from 2 pm to 10 pm.
The event begins Saturday at 2 pm and is enjoyable for the whole family. There are fire truck rides, vehicle and equipment demonstrations, games, and lifenet helicopter visits to the ballfield. EMT also offers free blood pressure screening and other services. And more!
Then, in an exclusive partnership with Prairie Flower Casino, a free outdoor concert, Rock the Boot, will begin at 4 pm. The show features three local area bands: Dysfunction, an up-and-coming garage band from Glenwood, Iowa, launches the show, followed by popular Omaha bands Frenzy and Wrecked Becky. Jeff Peck from Carter Lake appears on drums in Frenzy. The band covers rock’s biggest hits from the 1980s to the 2000s. During the show there is a food truck and a beer garden. All proceeds and donations from the beer garden will be used to support the Lake Carter Fire Department by funding future lifesaving training and equipment.
“We hope this will be an ongoing event for the community. The Carter Lake Fire Department wants to do something to show the community’s appreciation for their support. The safety, health, and health of our community. Welfare is our number one concern. ”– Trainer Dave Huey
