More than 200 firehouses and EMS stations across New York City will be holding open houses this weekend as part of the FDNY’s fifth annual open house program.

The firehouses will open their doors to the public from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5 and Sunday Oct. 6.

The FDNY is holding the open house weekend to educate the public about fire and safety, conduct demonstrations, discuss careers within the Department and offer tours.

Six stations across Jackson Heights, Corona and Elmhurst will be holding open houses at the weekend.

Engine 287/Ladder 136, Engine 324 and EMS Station 46 will all be open to the public in Elmhurst, while Engine 289/Ladder 138 will be holding an open house in Corona.

There will be one open house in Jackson Heights — at Engine 307/Ladder 154 — and one in East Elmhurst at Engine 316.

A full list of open houses across the city is available here.
