The Chula Vista Firefighters Foundation will serve a firehouse-style breakfast prepared by department staff and volunteers on July 9 at the new Fire Station 5 in western Chula Vista.
Those who attend will receive buttermilk pancakes with sausage and hash browns made from the iconic barbecue trailer at Fire Station 5, located at 341 Orange Avenue, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m while supplies last. According to the department, there will not be Gluten-free options at the event.
Pre-registration at https://www.cvfirefighters.org/posts/pancake-breakfast/ is available and guarantees breakfast at the event, but walk-ins are still welcome. Chula Vista Fire Department personnel and volunteers from CAST (Citizens’ Adversity Support Team) and CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) will serve each plate for a suggested $8 per plate.
All proceeds go to the Chula Vista Firefighters Foundation to support fire safety community programs, provide support to those displaced by the fire, and encourage fire suppression careers. Fire Station Apparatus Bay will be open for the public to browse t-shirts, hats, and other merchandise for sale by the Chula Vista Firefighter’s Foundation.
According to the department, kids can become a “Firefighter for a Day” and try on a firefighter uniform, test out equipment, do a mock search and rescue drill, and tour the fire engines and trucks.
Parking is available at the South Chula Vista Branch Library next door to Station 5 at 389 Orange Avenue, where the free Fire Department Centennial display with artifacts, videos, and photos is available for viewing. The library is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
