The brick Greenacres Fire Station opened in November and is now ready for the public to take a look around during an open house scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The station, at 17217 E. Sprague, replaces a manufactured home that was put on the site in 2004.
There will be community safety groups on hand to talk about their work, an ambulance on display and cake and cookies to celebate the second birthday of Mako, the department's accelerant sniffing dog. Kids can go through the Fire Safety House and adults will be able to practice putting out a fire with a fire extinguisher.
It's always fun to be able to take a look inside a facility that isn't usually open to the public unless special arrangements are made. Just one suggestion - don't fill up your car with gas on your way to the open house or Mako will be really, really happy to see you. Photo courtesy the Spokane Valley Fire Department.

There’s so much to check out in today’s Valley Voice that you might as well pour a cup of coffee and get comfortable. The Spokane Valley City Council voted to make some speed limit changes, Spokane Valley Fire started operating out of the new Greenacres Fire Station this week and the Liberty Lake City Council approved a one percent property tax increase.
Students from Central Valley schools will be at the Safeway on East Sprague, the Fred Meyer at Sprague and Sullivan, the Liberty Lake Albertson’s and the Albertson’s on 32nd for their annual “Fill the Bus” food drive Saturday to benefit the Spokane Valley Partners Food Bank. For those of you following the exploits of “Chicken,” check out the update on efforts to catch the free range bird and relocate her to a new home. Regular correspondent Stefanie Petit has been keeping readers updated about the bird ever since it began roosting under her porch a year ago.
Liberty Lake residents have the power to stop an ongoing crime spree by doing only one thing - locking up. Residents leaving their garages and the cars inside them unlocked have created a one stop burglar buffet for several weeks now. More thefts will be in the Liberty Lake police blotter coming in Thursday’s Valley Voice.
Other stories on tap for Thursday include a look inside the new (and newly renamed) Greenacres Fire Station, formerly known as Station 10. Crews started responding to calls there again this week after several months of bunking with crews at Station 7 on Evergreen Road. Spokane Valley Meals on Wheels recently got a contract to provide meals for all of Spokane County and the annual Fill the Bus food drive to benefit the Spokane Valley Partners Food bank is this weekend.
