Despite record-breaking heat, many Lakeside families attended our fire department open house on Saturday, September 26, 2015. Hosted by the Lakeside Fire Fighters' Association in conjunction with the Lakeside Fire District, this year's event was a great success.
In addition to apparatus displays, station tours, and fire safety information, we had informational displays from the Burn Institute, Sharp Grossmont Hospital Stroke Unit, Lakeside CERT, SDG&E, I Love a Clean San Diego, and the Lakeside Amateur Radio Club. Also attending were San Diego County HazMat, California Highway Patrol, and San Diego Sheriff's Department K9 unit.
A very special display this year was the antique CSFA Steamer Engine hosted by Dave and Barbara Hubert and their Dalmatian Dottie.
Lakeside Fire Fighters would like to acknowledge the support of the Lakeside Logistics Volunteer Group (LVG) for their help in coordinating, planning, setup, and cleanup. Also, a special thank you to Sondra Buzzell (wife of Lakeside Captain Matt Buzzell) for her amazing face-painting skills!
The fire department open house is an annual event. We hope to see all of you next year.
