Lakeside, CA -

On Monday, May 28, 2012, firefighters from Lakeside Fire Station 2 (River Park) participated in the Memorial Day events at Lindo Lake Park in Lakeside.  The event was sponsored by Lakeside VFW Post 5867.  Along with engine 2 and medic 2, attendees were treated to displays of rotary aircraft from the Navy and San Diego County Sheriffs and CalFire. The Navy provided the event with an H-60 from the HSC-23 "WILDCARDS" and the county provided two of its helicopters.  A Bell MD-530 commonly known as ASTREA was in attendance along with a bell 205 from San Diego Sheriff/CalFire office that is used in firefighting operations.  There was food drinks and fun had by all.
