The Fireperson Appreciation Parade is a biweekly event held by the Night Vale Fire Department. During the event, all of the town's firefighters ride through Main Street on their fire engines, which have been made into floats depicting the greatest fires of Night Vale's history. This event is first mentioned in "Feral Dogs".
The 1983 Earthquake Dust Fire
One such event depicted in the parade floats, which Cecil noted to be his personal favorite, was the 1983 Earthquake Dust Fire . The Fire Department did a fantastic job capturing this dramatic event with streamers and paper-mache.
The Night Vale Fire Department warns guests to the parade to turn off coffee makers and gas stoves before leaving their homes, as they will not be putting out fires for the duration of the event.
