Daisy Troop 6398 Visits Lakeside Fire Station

Riverview: The Lakeside Fire District was glad to have Daisy Troop 6398 stop by Station #1 on Riverview Ave. During the tour the troop was introduced to the many functions of the engine company, and had the opportunity to see the tools and operate some of the nozzles. Included in the tour was a review of "Stop-Drop-Roll", accessing 911, a station tour, and the opportunity to see full protective equipment used by firefighters in use.

Not only is this a great opportunity for us to discuss safety issues, but hopefully we spark interest in one of these youngsters that will purse a career in public safety.

If you have a group that would like to tour a Lakeside Fire Station, contact us at our administrative offices (619-390-2350) during business hours. We would love to have ya come by!
