My office has teamed up with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department to hold an open house of the recently completed Fire Station 45 in Mission Valley.
The family-friendly event will allow residents to tour the fire station and receive first-aid medical training from Project Heart Beat. Balloons and inflatable play structures will be available for kids to play on as well as free food courtesy of Lynx Grills.
Fire Station 45 is an important addition to the Mission Valley community that will improve response times and increase safety in the area. This is the first fire station built in District 7 in more than 20 years and I want to make sure that residents have the chance to take a tour and learn more about the new facility that will improve safety in our community.
The open house will be a great event for the family as well! In addition to tours, kids will have the chance to see a fire truck up close, meet Sparky the Fire Dog, the popular mascot of Fire-Rescue. The San Diego Rescue Foundation will have the “Inflatable City” bounce house available where children can have fun while learning how to safely exit a burning home.
The event is also a great opportunity to meet with San Diego’s public safety personnel and thank them for their hard work and dedicated service to our community.
The open house will also give me an opportunity to meet with you and hear your concerns and ideas on improving our community. In order for me to be the best councilmember I can be, it is important that I hear from you about problems or concerns in your neighborhood.
Fire Station 45 is located at 9366 Friars Road across the street from Qualcomm Stadium. Parking will be available in the adjacent lot that is accessible off of Mission Village Drive. The event runs from 11 a.m. — 1 p.m.
To RSVP or for more information about the event, contact my office at 619-236-6677 or email me at ScottSherman@SanDiego.Gov. Hope to see you there!
