Enjoy a firehouse-style breakfast prepared and served by firefighters (including top brass), volunteers from CERT and CAST, and Fire Explorers.  The menu includes buttermilk pancakes with a side of eggs, sausage, and hash browns straight from the iconic barbecue trailer and your choice of premium coffee donated by Starbucks, orange juice, or water.

Kids can become a “Firefighter for a Day” while parents visit with neighbors.  Try on a firefighter uniform, test out equipment, join a mock search and rescue drill, and tour the fire engines and trucks. Be sure to stop by the Fire Station Apparatus Bay (garage for non-fire personnel) to browse t-shirts, hats, and other merchandise for sale by the Chula Vista Firefighter’s Foundation.
