Moraga Orinda Fire Department (MOFD) Station 45 pulled out all its trucks for an open house on Saturday May 4. Although rain continued to pour down throughout the event, they had a great turnout, with many families enjoying the free hot dog and hamburger lunch served up by fire fighters, letting their children sit in the driver's seat of a big red fire engine, and browsing information provided by many local safety related agencies.
Some Community groups who had information tables included the Community Emergency Response Team, the American Red Cross, The Lamorinda Area Radio Interest Group, Rescue 1, East Bay Municipal Utility District, and Pacific Gas and Electricity. The City of Orinda was represented by James Duff, Education and Communications Coordinator.
Fire fighters, including Dennis Rein, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, and MOFD Board members Mike Roemer, Steve Danziger, and Craig Jorgens, mingled with the crowd, chatting about the district and fire safety issues.
