Exciting things are happening with the Peninsula Fire Department, as Chief Fred Gilstorff works with his team to replace aging vehicles and equipment, hold regular training sessions, hire new personnel, and educate the OMP community about fire and safety tips. There’s even a new fire station in the works for the north end of the Old Mission Peninsula.
A new Engine 1 arrived on the Old Mission Peninsula this summer, and now we also have a new tanker. You’ll see it out and about in the community as the team trains to become familiar with its capabilities and better serve us in fire situations.

The tanker is now at Station 1 in Mapleton, and everyone is invited to stop by, check it out, and see what it can do.
To celebrate all the good things happening, Peninsula Fire Department is hosting an Open House on Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Station 1, 14247 Center Road in Mapleton.
Stop by, meet the staff, check out the new vehicles, enjoy some family-friendly activities and tour the station. They’ll also be cooking up some tasty food, too.
