Brea Fire Station #4 Grand Opening in Olinda Village This Saturday!

This Saturday, 6 September from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Fire Station #4 of the Brea Fire Department, which is in a two-year agreement of shared command with the Fullerton Fire Department, is having its grand opening at its location at 198 Olinda Place in the Olinda Village shopping center off Carbon Canyon Road.  Remarks by local officials will begin at 11:15 a.m.

There has been a small facility at the site for years, but a rehabilitation includes new structures and other improvements to the staff, which will also be staffed better from the human and material resources standpoints.

Given the near-disaster of the Freeway Complex Fire of November 2008, better fire protection for the entire Carbon Canyon area has been a big priority and this station enhancement is part of the effort.

Fire personnel from Brea will be serving up a barbeque, there will be site tours, and the Carbon Canyon Fire Safe Council will have a presence along with the Brea CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) group.  Fire prevention and mitigation information will also be available.

Those interested in seeing the improved station are encouraged to come down, take a look, meet city and fire department leaders and see what is being done to strengthen fire protection in the Canyon.
