Lakeside Firefighters Join in Memorial Day Observance

Lakeside, CA -

Lakeside Firefighters from the Lake Jennings (fs3) and Eucalyptus Hills (fs2) fire stations joined Lakeside VFW Post 5867 in commemorating Memorial Day at a community observance. A solemn ceremony was conducted by members of the Post as well as distinguished speakers and members of our military.

In addition, there were fire engines, firefighting helicopters, and a paramedic ambulance on display to show the citizens of Lakeside the equipment available to protect them from a variety of emergencies.

As we remember those lost in service to our nation, the Lakeside Fire District and all of its employees would like to take this opportunity to thank our active and retired members of the military who work so hard and sacrifice so much to keep our country safe.

Marine Aircraft Wing, members of his staff, and members of Lakeside VFW Post 5867.
