Feel free to share this post...

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.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
