I got to spend some time with Humboldt Bay Fire's Jan Gillespie, Chief Bill Gillespie, Lyndon Powell and Battalion Chief Chris Emmons.
It was wonderful to see many families and the children so excited. One young boy was just thrilled to high five with the firefighters.
Even I decided to get into the festivities and get a junior firefighter hat, sticker and junior deputy sticker.
Virginia Bass, Matthew Owen and John Fullerton stopped by to visit at the open house (and took a break from their day long project putting together beds at the Betty Chinn Family Center, generously donated by a local business).
