Lakeside Fire Department Open House

On September 25, 2010, the Lakeside Fire Protection District held its annual Open House. Every year, near the start of national Fire Prevention Week, we open the doors of fire station number three on Highway 8 Business to provide fire prevention education
to the public

This event is geared towards children and adults alike, providing them with information on being fire safe. The event showcases one of our district's four stations, much of the apparatus operated by the district, vehicle extrication demonstrations, a jumper for the kids, an opportunity for the kids to operate a fire hose, Smokey the Bear, and Bella, the district's search and rescue dog. 

We invite many other agencies to participate in the event and they provide the public with additional safety information. We would like to thank the following agencies for making our event successful: the San Diego Burn Institute, the San Diego Sheriff Department Crime Prevention Unit, the California Highway Patrol, Cal Fire, Sharp-Grossmont Stroke Prevention, Farmers Insurance, San Diego County Watershed, (CERT) Community Emergency Response Team-Lakeside, and Road One Towing. Thank you to all who attended our event and we will see you next year!  For a full preview of the pictures we took at the 2010 Open House see our photo album.
